It's just an interesting experiment because they are all from the same tower which removes many variables
In my case, it was really difficult to get all 5 at once. Even with good UHF-only antennas (HDB91X, HDB8X, dB8e, etc.) it was difficult to find a hot spot on my roof for even the two strongest ones (WCAX and WPTZ) simultaneously. Signals that are 2-edge UHF can be super-finicky like that in terms of hot spots. Even 6-inch movements of the antenna in X, Y, and Z can make a big difference. I ended up mounting the antenna 50' up in a pine tree where I consistently get all five >99% of the time.
