Splitting coax feed from FM antenna? (1 Viewer)

I need to split a coax feed from my attic mounted FM antenna. Can I just use a standard coax video splitter?

anyone know anything about FM signals passed through RG-6 coax cable??? Would a monster video cable splitter work for the frequency used by the FM signal?

I think a regular video splitter would work fine. If I remember correctly FM frequency is somewhere between channel 6 and 7 or maybe between UHF and VHF.. anyways I know it is somewhere between the TV channels, so if it works for the TV frequency It will work for FM.

A TV splitter should work. FM is between 6 & 7. Caution though, some splitters have a circuit to filter FM out to help perserve a marginal TV signal.
Others are made for TV and FM and have a separate FM output jack.
Read the literature, or instructions on the package to make sure you have one that will pass FM and not filter it out.
Monster seems to make some good splitters, but they are not cheap.
You don't get something for nothing, and a splitter will result in some signal loss. If you are getting a good strong signal now, it should not be noticeable.
