2 antennas 2 preamps 1 output to tv ?

What do I need to pull this off .
Wanting to add another 91xg as well as a 7777 preamp for a total of 2 antennas and 2 preamps . I assume all I will need is a splitter right before I go into the tv ?

I appreciate all the help I received last time . The 91XG was just the ticket.

I am assuming the antennas are aimed in different directions, receiving different stations. (If you are attempting to gang them, to make them into a single antenna, take a look at this information on antenna stacking.)

You can try a reversed 2-way splitter... it's cheap and easy. If it doesn't perform the way you expect, it's easy to back up and start again.

However, there is a reason CATV head-ends have thousands of dollars per channel worth of equipment installed to receive, filter, process and often shift the frequencies. (But if you can get a $6 splitter to work, great.)

Here's what works for me. (Not a one size fits all solution.)

Many use an A/B switch of some type.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)

I actually am using a Homerun Hd but it is the model with the single tuner.
I may buy an additional tuner that has the 2 inputs and use both tuners.
The antennas will be pointing in different directions.
