Re: antenna splitter ?

Hasan Schiers N0AN

When I bought these, they were in a package of 5 for $19.95

The big need for me is caused by the 25-60w output from my 2/70cm Collinear which is 2' away from my Satellite rx antenna on 145.9. I also have a KW output 6m amp and the 6m LFA Yagi is about 4' away, BUT, that is taken care of by a set of back to back 2m/70cm duplexers in the shack giving > 60 dB of additional isolation. Also have KW out on HF to wire antennas suspended about 10' below the satellite antennas.

The 6M, 2M collinear and the Satellite antennas are all fed with 1/2" hardline, so there isn't a lot of loss to reduce that 25 to 60 watts of RF on 2m APRS from getting into the satellite antenna only 2' away.

Maybe if you expand the drawing beyond what you show it would make sense. At the
moment it looks to me like you have a loop between the input and output of the
7600 through the splitter. Does the radio normally have a jumper from RX-ANT-OUT
to RX-ANT-IN for it to work correctly? Remember, I do not have a 7600. All I
have is your (incomplete?) description below to work from.
