This speaks well of BOTH antennas. I understood that the DB8e did not pick up VHF-High, but your experience contradicts that.

I told you they were good antennas!

What directions are your antennas pointing to? When you are swapping out antennas, are you making sure the unused antenna is at least four feet from the used antenna?

ya they were 4ft away, I aimed onw part of the db82 to 308 and the other to 350. I was holding it do more or less those degrees.

First, note that the TVFool talks about true AND magnetic north. Make sure you are using the correct one (my phone app toggles between the two). Second, reception can vary even in a small area, so see if changing the location and angle affects the signal. Third, too much signal can cause as much of a problem as too little. If you have a device that shows signal strength and/or signal quality, it will be easier for you to make things work. Finally, identify/remedy any potential sources of interference. Other metal stuff, trees, etc.

46/10: 2 (magnetic), LOS ==> this is VHF; the DB8e is optimized for UHF
69/17: 261 (magnetic), 2 edge ==> obstructed and nearly 50 degrees from the panel pointed to 308

48/47: 355 (magnetic), LOS
66/27: 342 (magnetic), LOS
68/32: 355 (magnetic), LOS
38/39: 355 (magnetic), LOS
62/18: 355 (magnetic), LOS
60/18: 355 (magnetic), LOS (broadcast from WFMP)
56/41: 356 (magnetic), LOS
25/31: 356 (magnetic), LOS

These should all be fine. Make the panels parallel to each other and point them to (342+356)/2 or 349 magnetic. See if that helps.
