I personally wouldn't.It's another potential fail point.

It's one of the many things I was obsessive about building the Ballistic. The VHF cable is one piece from ariel to set.

A VHF marine antenna wouldn't be ideally suited to broadcast FM anyway.
Personally I'd avoid a splitter and if I needed to just stick a car antenna on somewhere.
