Before you buy any more stuff, you should really figure out what you're going to get and what you're going to lose as it isn't just a matter of spending more and getting more.

Getting stations just to elevate your station count is going to cost you dearly given all the shared channel issues (especially where NTSC is involved). Then, as the repack happens in the next couple of years, the whole landscape is likely to change. Think first, buy later.

IIRC, the Canadian channels repack last so it may get better and later collapse (and not just the Canadian channels).

Just be aware that adding one station may cost you other stations because interference doesn't care what you want.

Don't take it personal. Harsh is just trying to explain the reality of the situation. What looks simple (on Youtube) can be quite difficult in some cases. Interference from co-channels coming in on your second antenna could easily negate the gains that you are hoping for. So be realistic and expect to run into some issues that may need you to make adjustments.

I have that antenna. great outdoor antenna. i get PBS vhf real channel 12 from Philadelphia about 60miles away. Maybe use the house to block " diminish single strength " of the channels from other directions that you dont want from the 751 antenna.
