I have a single uhf/vhf/fm antenna on my roof and meant to buy the AP-8700 preamp (single input). Instead I bought the ap-2870 preamp and i cant return it. Can i use a two way splitter to run the antenna into the amplifiers vhf and uhf inputs at the same time and use the preamp that way?

Good morning Phil,
You can use a 2 way splitter to split the antenna signal to provide you 2 inputs. The problem with using a splitter ahead of the preamplifier is that you reduce both the VHF and UHF signals by 30% before going into the preamplifier. The proper way to split your signal will be to use a UHF/VHF combiner/ separator such as the Pico Macom UVSJ combiner/separator.
