    Correct, I linked the wrong splitter in the first link. The splitter I am using is the same brand and is basically identical to the splitter linked only it is 2.3-GHz just like the 2nd splitter linked in my post. Have been using this for a while now with zero issues.

    Just make sure to "Go Green" with DECA .. It is important.

    Since there has been some talk about splitters, I thought I'd let those know why the green label splitters are needed for DECA. They have been modified with a filtered resistor circuit to connect all the output for the DECA signal. The 2-way has about 8 dB loss, the 4-way has about 11 dB, and "I'd guess" [haven't measured one] the 8-way has 14 dB loss. Even with the 8-way, this is half of what the loss is without this modification on normal splitters.
