Here's a question:

In planning for the upcoming fall contest season, I have been 
upgrading my Beverage system.  I run two radio, single op and 
feed the Beverages through the auxiliary receive antenna inputs
on my Omni-VI Plus transceivers.  One problem I had last year
was the constant flipping of a coax switch to feed the Beverages
to whatever rig "needed" them.  Often, I found (with one rig on
80 and one on 160) that what I really needed was the Beverages
in both rigs at once.

The incredibly insightful answer I have come up with is to use 
a T connector and feed them to both rigs simultaneously.  The
question is:  is it really going to be that easy?  Or, is there
some pitfall I'm missing?  Incoming signal reduction due to
the splitting?  Hmmm?
