Can't you just manually add the 2nd antenna's channels? And have two sets of favorites. One for each antenna.

If the cables are flat twin lead, just buy an adapter to coax.

Then use a coax splitter with the single coax wire going to the TV.

Plus whatever coax cable required.

Yes, selector switch, preferably amplified to make up for the signal loses of the switch.



Best choice however is 2 flat screen TV's, each mounted on the wall facing the city in question, both with an individual antenna specific to that city.

Preferably in separate rooms so as to reduce interference.
