Are any of you using diplexers or triplexers to make your feedlines do
multiple duty on several bands?
I'm looking at the units made by Diamond. They have a triplexer for
HF/VHF/UHF and diplexers for VHF/UHF that have low insertion losses.
Do these have to be used with 50 ohm feedlines? If I shell out for some
Andrews 50 ohm, LDF hardline, I could conceivably use two triplexers and get
three high quality feedlines from one run.
Can these be used with 75 ohm CATV hardline, or do I have to homebrew some
75 ohm diplexers and then cut 75 ohm, flexible coax jumpers for 1/2 wave
multiples on each band, once separated?
The total coax run for my station will be about 175 feet.
Thanks for your ideas,
