VHF/AM/FM splitter on my masthead VHF antenna

jbanta,

I agree in theory. And normally I would agree, but both "fer" and Gordmay (well respected authority on Marine electronics and communications) said it looked like there was little or no signal loss.

And even if it did "screw up my signal/reception/transmission" on my VHF it would be very easy to remove where I have it located. I have easy access to the back of my VHF. Plus I have backups.

But if a $60 part doesn''t hurt my VHF and really helps the radio reception then I''ll be happy, as reception can be poor for the stations I''d like to listen to.

But looking in JC whitney is not what I''d like, and I don''t think the reception could match the potential of the mast head VHF antenna in height....and that really is what I''m looking to take advantage of.
