Picking the best antennas for the job
What if you wanted to use multiple antennas on your station? Maybe you have the need for a VHF, UHF, and 800MHz Yagi antenna. How do you combine all three antennas over a single coax line and feed them into your scanner?
What you need to know
Diplexers, duplexers, triplexers, and quadplexers are common ways to combine multiple antennas over a single coax run
In this session, we discuss:
- The difference between diplexers and duplexers
- How sharing a single coax run can save you money
- What to look for when purchasing a diplexer, duplexer, triplexer, etc
- Why we don't use “T” connectors, splitters, or common combiners
