I am using standard Channel Master Antenna to receive OTA.
I decided I wanted to use the UHF to improve my FM signal for the FM radio functionality of my receiver.
In order to connect to the FM input on my receiver, I need to split the signal coming in from outside.
I am using a simple Y-spliter coaxial box (gold in color: very common in North America) to split it. However when I split it, the number of OTA channels I receive drops from about 20 to about 15 the moment I add the spliter. I go from the spliter to the digital analog converter box (I have a CRT TV).
Any advice on why adding a spliter reduces my signal and how I can improve it so that I can still get the benefits of using my UHF antenna for FM radio would be greatly appreciated.
