Here's a low-cost answer to a common problem shared by shortwave listeners and radio amateurs. Namely, how to connect one antenna among several radios. The answer is found in a simple HF Antenna Splitter that you can build yourself. The HF splitter is for listening only.  The splitter is not intended for transmitting.

"The Radio Hobbyist" has done an excellent job of showing the assembly of this simple, useful tool.  While you can find HF splitters online, you may want to save some money and build one yourself.
