Yes, but...
It will work but not well. More important than the reduced efficacy of this as a TV antenna, all splitters have an inherent loss. Albeit not great, the loss can reduce the effective radiated power of your VHF and therefore it's range can also be reduced. A 3dB loss may not sound like much but that is the equivalent of cutting the VHF radio power by half.
