[amsat-bb] Splitter for receiving system?

Hello All,

I am really wishing for a "splitter" for my receiving system, good for both
2M and 70cm (so say, 144-450MHz or so.)

Any suggestions?  I really don't to lose 3dB in the process, but fear the
only way to avoid that is some powered/amplified system.  I recall such a
device, but cannot for the life of me think where or the possible source.
I do not need to xmit through it; receive only.  Also, I do not need to
pass 12V to power preamps, etc.  So, just a low loss splitter good for 2M
and 70cm.   SMA, BNC, N connectors--any will work in my shack.

Do folks refer to these as splitters?  Combiners?  Power splitters?  I know
about Mini Circuits--that's a sensory overload of stuff to pick through :)

Any pointers to sources or such devices will be welcomed!
