Antenna Multi-Couplers
« on: December 05, 2013, 1858 UTC »
Looking for a recommendation on a good antenna multi-coupler.  What I want to do is split the lead-in from my vertical into three outputs

1) for fullband use (100khz-30 MHZ)
2) for LW use only ( I have filters to pass only 500khz and below)
3) for HF use only (I have filters to reject BCB and below)

The best multi-coupler I have seen is the Elad ASA-15.  I use one to feed multiple rx from the antenna switch's output.  I could buy another one to create the 3 outputs I need but they are expensive (~$450) and I really didn't want to spend that much.  It's been hard to find one that's reasonably priced (+/- $100-$150) that works from 100khz-30MHZ.

Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Ian  ;D

Thanks very much Lino.  I'll pick up one of those or the Mini-Circuits which I've read about.
