Guys, I have two handhelds (BCD436HP & a Pro-18) here in my bedroom that I'm listening to. Trouble is one has a BNC connector & the other has the SMA connector. The antenna I use is a dipole with a female BNC connector. What can I do to connect both radios to this one dipole. I need some kind of T-connector with one connector being a female BNC & 2 being male SMA connectors. Anyone got any ideas as to how I can do all this without much signal loss & tell me what parts/connectors I need.

Thanks in advance!

Firstly you can't just split it with a "Tee" or other splitter without signal loss.

More expensive option - Get a 2 port Stridsberg multicoupler, a BNC male to BNC male jumper and a BNC Male to SMA jumper.

Less expensive option get a cable drop amp, but then you'll have to deal with adapting it's "F" connector input and outputs to BNC/SMA
