Tv antenna combiner Answered

Does anyone know how to make a tv antenna combiner? The ones available for purchase do not work with my application.

I have two digital antennas, one on the eave of the house and one on the gable. The one on the eave picks up 23 channels, the one on the gable picks up 30 DIFFERENT channels (mostly, some overlap) . I would like to be able to connect both antennas to my tv to get the maximum channels. Currently I have to go out and switch antenna cable at the box to watch the channel with the best program. Both antennas require 5V dc. I have tried multiple "combiners" from local sources and again they do not work, at best I get the mid range frequencies which is about 15 channels. Yes I could drill holes in the walls and put more cable in and us an A/B switch but not only is that a lot of work and costly, its no fun and I cant use my soldering iron :-)

Thanks

David
