Im looking to put a sat dish and UHF panel on the roof of our motorhome, the UHF panel is amplified (9v). It would be great if i could do it with one cable. Is there a Combiner/ splitter/ Diplexer that will allow power pass through both? any ideas welcome, thanks in advance

Wouldn't have thought so because the sat will want to send 18v to the lnb which will fry your UHF panel. Probably best to run a second cable if at all possible.

And of course RunningMan is correct. You'll fry your UHF panel. Definitely two cables or use UHF antenna in place of the powered panel.

the sat box is 12v, will that have some bearing? i already have the panel its small which is ideal for the bus....i think 2 cables is the answer....cheers

The lnb on the sat dish will be 18v to get freeview. Doesn't matter what voltage the sat box runs on it will send 18v up to the dish.
