Question Adding an FMSS

I'm adding an Antennacraft FMSS to my line and want to know if a special combiner is needed. My UHF antenna doesn't pick up FM well. I am also adding a VHF-Hi antenna but that one isn't tuned for FM either.

Would there be any potential issues. Should I just drop a separate coax in the wall for the FMSS?

FM Reception

The best way is a separate coax. No issues with combiners , signal reduction or antenna cross talk. To reduce interaction of the FM antenna with other antennas , at least a 6 foot distance from other antennas.

Okay I'm running separate coax lines for the FMSS. Seems like a good timekiller project for the weekend. I don't want it to interfere with my Y5-7-13 and CM4221 since I finally got it the way I wanted.

A HLSJ will combine and separate the FM signal from the VHF hi and UHF signals.
