• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I'm using an Ideal cable tv splitter (5MHZ-1GHZ), right now, to split my Scantenna 3 ways, but was also looking at the ones from Petra and Steren...

Any opinions on good cable splitters, or all about the same?

I'd suggest using a multicoupler type device to minimize signal loss. I've been using specific models of Electroline distribution amps with great success; UG 2402 4-port and UG 2802 8-port. They can be had on eBay for less than $25 these days. Check out a prior post of mine for more details HERE

As Steve mentioned, the Electroline distribution amps are great!. Using them myself and you can't beat those prices for the performance it gives you.
Take care
