Also, does this take into consideration the splitter is “powered” as opposed to a non-powered splitter? The specs of the powered unit claim negligible insertion loss. I can’t imagine they could claim this with a 50% loss.

Bob, That's interesting, I was told there would be a loss by the rep. for Garmin , approx. 2db, which was their argument for a dedicated antenna. I just did not and still don't understand why you have a loss assuming good connections and the antenna only servicing one unit at a time either vhf or ais. Thanks, Pat
