I've seen more mention of distributing FM on this board than I expected.


I'm running a single RG6-QS up to the garage attic for my existing UHF antenna for OTA reception.


Would you run a second line for an FM antenna or future use while you still can?

I never thought about needing one, but I could see wanting reliable FM reception in other parts of the house, or for recording off an FM tuner on a PC.


Thanks,

I've use CM 0549 joiner to send FM from a separate antenna over an existing cable. Actually, it's joined with diplexed SAT/OTA UHF signal. Everything seems to work fine. Dedicated run might be better but my reception seems to work just fine. I have a problem with one low powered local station though. I'm thinking of trying antenna by itself to see if it's going to be better.

It was pretty easy to run another line since the holes were drilled and there was already one going up there, so it's all done now.


I thought about joining two antennas together on the one run. FM and UHF would probably work fine even with a normal splitter/combiner.

I was a bit worried about ATSC reception problems with a combined signal. I get a lot of multipath where I am.


Thanks for all the input,
