Depends on the strength and quality of the received signal. Why not try a splitter first and see.

Signal strength 70% quality 100% and should get better on strength when transmitter goes digital in march

As Satelliteman says try the splitter first its the cheapest option and may well be ok with your signal readings.

If reception proves to be poor with the splitter then you can add the amp!

Just to let you know i split the signal with an "f" plug block and i,m seeing no drop in signal values,

so the answer to the O P was NOT TO AMP!!!
