Room #1 has a Philips SDV2210/27 HDTV/UHF/VHF/FM Indoor TV Antenna with a Motorola Signal Booster BDA-S1 1-Port Cable Modem TV HDTV Amplifier. The run from the antenna to the tv is about 30 feet, the antenna sits about six feet off the ground and the antenna is facing North. The reception in this room is awesome, no issues.
Room#2 has a ClearStream Micron Indoor Long-Range Digital TV Antenna that sits about 10 feet off the ground(in the attack) facing north. I get half the channels and the ones I get cut out often. the run from the antenna to tv is about 10 feet.
The two channels I would like to get in room #2 that I don’t already are 11(NBC) and 13 (CBS)
Unlike the Philips, which has rods to handle VHF, the Micron is not well designed for VHF reception, so it isn’t surprising it doesn’t get 11 and 13. You might play around a bit with the location and orientation of the Micron and get lucky, but the more straightforward approach would be to replicate what works.
One option would be to replace the Micron with a second Philips. You can test this option with the Philips you have. You really shouldn’t need an amplifier for a single TV, even with a 30-foot run, much less 10.
But since you already have an amplifier, the output of which should be more than sufficient for two TVs, option 2 would be to split the output of that amplifier and run a line from room 1 to room 2.

One pending deal that could be affected by the hold in Sinclair Broadcast Group's $985 million purchase of Allbritton Communications. It includes sharing arrangements involving stations in two markets — Harrisburg, Pa., and Charleston, S.C.
TiVo has added listings for WFDCDT3 to the Cox Fairfax lineup on channel 817. Program listings start at 6am on the 3rd, and consist entirely of 1930s-60s movies except for a 3-hour kids block on Friday morning, presumably to comply with FCC rules.
14-2 is probably reserved for something else.
