A couple questions about splitters

Planning to split my antenna signal between 2 TVs. Several questions:

1) What kind of upper Mhz range should I look for? All stations are UHF.
2) Does it matter where the splitter is relative to the antenna or the TVs?
3) Do I need a splitter that contains a preamp? I am only 8 miles from the towers but have lots of trees in the signal path. Total run will be less than 100 feet, probably closer to 75.

Thanks.

1. 700 MHz or higher. 5-1000 MHz is a common CATV splitter and works fine.
2. Probably not.
3. Probably not.
