Thank you for the inner details of this amazing product. Having grown up in Wheatfield I know the advantages and problems receiving stations from multiple directions.

My brother still lives in WNY. An optimum array for his location is a small UHF antenna aimed at Grand Island, an 8 bay UHF antenna aimed at Colden (but aimed to put Grand Island in a null), and another 8 bay UHF aimed at Toronto (but aimed to put Grand Island in a null), plus a VHF antenna with UHF filtered out aimed at Toronto for CTV on channel 8.

Even then there may be adjacent channel issues that the filter cannot fix. I wonder if frequency translation to channels without adjacent channels could bury the problem?
For instance, a station with a strong station below it could be shifted to channels 2, 5, 7, or 14. A station with a strong station above it could be shifted to channels 4, 6, 13, or 36.
