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
