Default Antenna Splitter Help Needed

Hello,

As I cannot seem to find one on the market, I am looking to build a splitter that will go from 1 x N-type to 2 x F-type connectors. I come from an audio and electrical background, and have little knowledge of radio signals. Does anyone have any circuits that would achieve this with a minimal signal loss?

The application is for a ship's entertainment system, so AM/FM radio mainly.

Is your antenna a single passive AM/FM combo or an amplified model or what?

Using a passive splutter will cut the signal level to each receiver by at least 50%, so if that's ok here is one that will work for your needs. https://myradiostore.com/mb-2-multi-...fhd-4-antenna/

I assume you have one cable from the antenna that terminates in an N male connector and if so this adapter will screw onto the splitter and accept and N male: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1Pc-Adapter...LH_TitleDesc=0
