    I have been looking at getting a Silver Sensor antenna since I have heard such great reviews about it's ability to handle multipath issues. However there is one problem. I will also need to recieve VHF signals (SS is UHF only) in order to get the ABC affiliate. So my question is, is there a way to combine a VHF and the SS into one cable? I have a Dish 6000 and I only want to run one cable to the system, but I need a way to combine the UHF and VHF antennas. I was thinking I could probably use a switch but I'm so lazy I really don't want to have to get up everytime to switch between the two. [​IMG] Any suggestions? Thanks, Chris

    For all 75 ohm connections the Channel Master Model 0549 should do this.
    The Rat Shack has a 15-1293 that does the same.
    Other combo's are available, common to have 75 ohm VHF and 300 ohm UHF. A splitter is the same as a combiner, just used in reverse.
