I have three antennas in my attic - I'm able to pick up approximately 39 channels using a combiner/splitter. I'm also, I believe, having interference from overhead air traffic as I'm close to Charlotte Airport. So I bought the AvantX American Edition 532180 thinking I could separate the channels in the four inputs, I was told that the three antennas could be stepping over each other. I loaded the channels and then send it to the AvantX. Took it up to the attic, connected the antennas, plugged it in leaving the output plugged into the 75 ohm connect to do the adjustments. All looked good. Powered down, plugged in the output cable, powered on. Rescan the TV no broadcast signals. Not sure what to do next. Is there any installers OTA/AvantX in the Charlotte surrounding area. I'm technically on the board of South Charlotte , SC side.

Antennas
ClearStream 2 antenna (using UHF only) - WSOC RF-19; WCCB RF-18; WUNG RF-21
Antennas Direct 8-Element Bowtie TV Antenna (two outputs) ; WBTV - RF 23; WCNC RF-24; WJZY RF-25; WAXN RF-23
ClearStream 1 - WNSC-DT - RF 34 (low signal)

Have you had any luck? I m in the same area with DBA, a stellar labs VHF, and a 2 bay . I was looking at the AVANT X

Hello,
I also live near a very busy airport and I thought my signal problems were due to multipath interference. I was going to move my antenna to another location but since I am lazy I decided to try a channel master lte filter first and so far it has made a huge difference with the signal breakups when the airplanes fly over.
Don't know if it will help in your situation but for the cost it might be worth a try.
