As I recall, the last time I bought a Radio Shack splitter it said "5-900
MHz" on it. I take this to mean it should pass anything between 5 and
900MHz without degradation. 

Most splitters I've seen specify a frequency range--something to check.

If someone's put a high-pass filter in the coax line to prevent HAM/CB
interference, this would degrade the return frequencies as well.
