Omni Directional Outdoor digital TV Antenna

Is it also VIABLE to combine the feeds of two various antennas so that one digital box will be provided by stations coming at it from two (also slightly) different directions? (Or will which make reception even worse?)
Also, as opposed to that, which are the results of feeding an omni-directional antenna's feed into a digital box? I attempted it quite a long time back with a vintage "early phases" electronic tuner, and wasn't also happy with the outcomes. Would I get better results today, either considering making use of a newer omni-directional antenna or because utilizing a more recent field?
I am nonetheless a bit of a newbie with regards to outside antennas, but We have absorbed a lot of information over within our Antenna threads right here.
A very important factor i could tell you is although it's feasible to mix two antennas, chances are less of an inconvenience to work with one omnidirectional (and on occasion even one directional one with a rotator). From the thing I understand, the coax from all the antennas must be identical in every means, length especially, or you'll get multipath issues, and exact same goes for the combiner you use...don't get low priced in the sign combiner.
How long from your towers are you? Your TVfool.com image/results might-be helpful to post. In my situation, my towers tend to be grouped together in two various directions, almost 180 degrees apart. However, i am less than 12 miles for almost each of my towers, aided by the furthest stations becoming 45 and 60 miles away. I have a big directional antenna directed in a single course to pull in those programs farther away, while the extra is right around my antenna (within 10 kilometers or so), it acts multidirectionally. For that reason, I do not need to maneuver my antenna to grab the channels we wanna enjoy, which fits me personally fine.
Basically actually desired to, i really could use my rotator to show and scan for networks, with my antenna becoming a sizable directional one, i possibly could most likely pick-up additional stations in other markets within a 100 or maybe more mile radius.
