    Hey Folks,

    I am in North Delta and use an outdoor south/west facing RCA Indoor TV Antenna HDTV Amplified Antenna TV Digital HD (AZON011).

    I get 21 channels- most from the south in the states and the 2 CTV channels from the North shore transmitter.

    One of the CTV channels (17) isn’t as strong. So I plan on adding a second antenna (Fosmon Outdoor) on the other side of the house pointing north at the transmitter and using a splitter to combine both coax signals into a single coax going into the house.

    Will I encounter problems with interference? Should I just move the single antenna and forget about the south facing transmitter if i just want the CTV channels?

    Thanks,

    GS

    Combing two antennas can come with mixed success. You will have to experiment with placement. I heard some people that gained some channels and some that lost channels. I do think it is worth trying. You can always return the antenna if it does not work. Make sure you use a coupler and not a splitter to combine the antennas. You could also upgrade your antenna to an Antennas Direct 8 Element Bowtie Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna which is essentially two antennas in one. It also allows you to point each side of the antenna in the correct location. Here is an article that might help you out.

    Combining Two HD Antennas for Better Reception

    Good luck

    Hi…. On the off chance that you can’t get both from one heading, have a go at pointing directly at Tacoma and check whether it comes in OK. I’d attempt this next as it is more straightforward and more solid than another radio wire, in addition to you will at any rate decide whether gathering is even achievable. In the event that you add a subsequent reception apparatus, an amplified splitter/combiner will present misfortune.

    On the off chance that still no karma, you need a greater/higher radio wire, better coaxial link, a reception apparatus enhancer (at the receiving wire), or these. You will most joyful with one radio wire.

    Just the low VHF channels are no more. You’re receiving wire should keep on functioning just as it did.
