Same here. Unless you're rotating around for VHF channels in different directions, you can disconnect the VHF antenna and leave it pointed in one direction.
Edit, just looked at your TV fool and wow, you have stations all around you. They've got you surrounded!
If you do want to rotor around on VHF (maybe to get that WBJK?), you can always disconnect or cut off the UHF portion of the 3016 -- it is doing nothing anyway but taking up space in your setup because you already have a dedicated UHF antenna. That would cut the size of the antenna by 1/3 or more.
But PCTools, I guess I still don't quite understand your goal here.
You say you get even WKBD with the 4221... Are you getting dropouts from time to time and are looking to eliminate those? Or are you looking to reach out and possibly get more channels? If you already have a solid lock on the channels you want, a "better" antenna won't really do anything for you. If your signals are weak from time to time or you just want to reach out and get as many channels as possible like a lot of us do, a higher-gain antenna would help you do that.
As for your one question, I don't think there's any doubt that a 4228 would get those 11 and 13 channels. The 8-bays with a wider screen will get some upper VHF (the DB8 is not one of those, though at the strength of your 11 and 13 it could still work). But heck, 11 and 13 are close enough that I suspect a wire dipole cut to the proper length would get them.
