Hello, Shawn.

That's difficult to predict. WTNH will be in a null, making it a lot weaker, when the antenna is aimed at WFSB, but it will help that WTNH is much stronger.

You might have some multipath reflections that will interfere with the reception of WTNH when the antenna is not aimed at WTNH.

You will just have to try it.

If it doesn't work, you will need to use separate UHF and VHF antennas combined with a UVSJ.
