I am running out of between floor coax and am wondering if I can use the same coax to send AND receive. Specifically I want to use diplexers to separate VHF (the channel 3 RF modulated signal being sent out of my receiver) travelling one direction with the satellite travelling the other (the inbound satellite feed). Obviously I have a cental coax wiring location where I will split the channel 3 signal off to send it to another TV...

Maybe I should draw a picture... Or do you understand what I am trying to do??

Using Diplexers would be fine for this.
