One VERY important point is that for the signals to ADD, they must be
SYCHRONOUS -- that is, on precisely the same frequency, coming from the
same oscillator. In practical terms, this means a signal generated by a
single transmitter, then fed to two power amps that feed different
antennas. Or a single transmitter (with or without a single power amp),
split between multiple antennas.
If the two signals were not synchronous (that is, from two independent
transmitters) their phase relationships will be random, and addition and
subtraction will be quite unstable and unpredictable.
