One Antenna with two receiver


#1

I need some tips on how to work with single antenna on two receivers. Does reversing the splitter works?

I tried this before using the following. It worked out for what I had in mind. I use this on my OTA setup. Even though the freq only goes to 1000 MHz, it still worked for me.

This one passes power.

You need a proper splitter with good isolation between the ports; the dongles are not well isolated so they will interfere with each other if you use a splitter with no isolation.

You’re going to lose around 3dB of signal, there’s not much you can do about that.

I just received a couple of these yesterday, and the one I’m using seems to be working fine.
