    I would like to swap out my truck's FM radio antenna for an NMO mount and some coax. What would I need to split the FM broadcast band to go to my in dash radio? I know such exist, I have seen it on a boat for the VHF marine band, but I want UHF, or both VHF and UHF. Any ideas?

    You will need to buy an antenna already set up for this. I remember my dad got one to use with an FM converter back in the early 70s.
