    Can I split the antenna lead coming off the roof mounted antenna?

    I want to be able to have two receivers inside my house and am unsure if Sat antenna leads can be split like analog TV signals and radio signals.

    Thanks!

    No. Each Sirius receiver in your house will need it's own antenna.

    Interesting question, officially I'm sure the answer is no, but it must be doable - how do best buy, etc do it? ... reality, it probably is doable (though at best you'll lose 3dB signal, or half the signal. Reality, even a cable TV split loses 3.5-4dB. You'll lose more. I'm sure Sirius makes a distribution amp or something for stores to use. Try to get one yourself.)
