    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.

I have received many comments about people having issues with tuner reception. Several readers are frustrated that one TV gets more channels than the other one. I am experiencing the same problem. I have two TV's connected to one OTA antenna in my attic. My Samsung TV has better reception than my RCA television. Both televisions have different tuners. Samsung televisions generally have better tuners. If you are having the same issues, there are several ways to receive more OTA channels with a better tuner.
