In your case attempting to combine the two antennas simply won’t work. This is because channel 35 from Hamilton is roughly 50 dB stronger than channels 34 and 36 from Buffalo. Digital tv on adjacent channels works only if the signal strength difference on adjacent channels is less than 30 dB. The 91XG has about 28 dB rejection of channel 35 when the antenna is aimed at Buffalo. That would make Hamilton 22 dB stronger than WNLO/WIVB and WKBW.

If any attempt is made to combine antennas, Hamilton’s channel 35 will prevent reception of channels 34 and 36 from Buffalo and would be a waste of time.

There is no other way to make Hamilton weak enough to receive NBC and ABC from Buffalo other than using a specific dedicated antenna properly aimed for Buffalo.
