2.) There may be some subtle directivity, you can try adjusting the aim. Don't expect a great difference though.

3.) There are commercial products... expect to pay $1500 & up for new. I have not done a recent search to be able to offer a specific recommendation.
Thanks again GroundURMast,

Yep the balun is what I was trying to spit out, basic splitter it is then..

I give it a shot moving it around here and there and maybe even re-mount outside eventually ?

Looks like I don't need that meter after all I guess when I get to the point on the TV antenna if I try the HDhomerun set up it will show the signal strength and quality of the signal as well...
