Maybe so, but the 4228 is not omnidirectional.  In fact, it's highly
directional with a 10-15 degree face.

But that leads me to a question I've been wondering.  Suppose I have a
couple of antennae on my rooftop.  Can I just combine them onto a
single coax with a splitter/combiner?  If that works, is there any
practical limit on the number of antennae I can combine that way?

(I already combine my small-dish satellite signal with my off-air
antenna via a diplexor, but I'm thinking of an additional,
differently-oriented off-air antenna if I can do it without another
cable run.)
