    So I was wondering I want to split my signal from my outside antennea to my second unit upstairs. Simple? Will there be any loss to my first unit downstairs will it be noticable?

    yes there will be loss in any passive splitter, Usually -3dB or half power. try it out and look at the signal meter indications. It will be noticeable if you listen to the noise in stereo, but it depends on how strong the signal is to begin with.

    Thank you very much harve on the tip for the Channel Master I will pick one up. While we are at it, any thoughts on how much difference I might achieve if I were to have a new cable run from the rooftop Antenna and if so what type of cable you have found best results from?

    All RG-6 on ALL of my runs...
    Run brand new RG6 from the Antenna...
    Your Antenna Should have a Channel Master Antenna Amp Also....
    ( At the Antenna mast is the external Antenna booster )
    and inside home is the Power Module... plugged into 120v.....
    then distributed via One RG6 to the Seperate Distribution Amp inside home, then RG6 Lines to each perspective Rooms TV's Stereo Receivers, Surround Sound Receiver Etc etc..

    So you should have an External Antenna Amp at the Mast....
    And the Power Module inside the house...
    Then a Separate Distribution Amp powered also by 120v then distributed to the Units

    Use Dielectric GREASE on ALL EXTERNAL CONNECTIONS... AND Boot sealers and use Surgical Gloves when using Dielectric GREASE....

    External amp at mast... Power module plug-in 120 volt inside the house...
    RG6 connection over to the separate distribution amp plugged into 120 volts then RG6 distributed to all of the TVs and receivers....
    So you should have two totally separate amplifiers..
    One to boost the signal at the antenna into the house and the other to boost the signal from the antenna amplifier module to all the receivers and televisions
