[AMRadio] Cable splitters for receivers

I have used them to feed multiple VHF Hi-Band receivers to monitor our local county freqs.  Of course, the loss inherent to the splitters is not an issue where I live  due to being relatively close to Central Dispatch.  75 ohm impedance does not seem to make a difference for the receivers.  Never have used them below 40 MHz, but see no reason they should not work unless the signal strength is really low.

> Has anybody tried using a CATV splitter that is rated for 5-1000 Mhz to put multiple receivers on one antenna without having to switch? I know the 5MC rating is cutting off before 80 and 160, but was just curious, maybe they might work below 5 don't know. I have a CATV switch with F connectors that I stuck some BNC to F adapters on and use on my 129X and BC1004B, but wondered if I can streamline it.
