Sorry, I didn't interpret your original post as a limitation of only using
one radio. I didn't understand that you were limited to one antenna.  I
thought you were interested in receiving some local signals to evaluate TNC
decoding. It wasn't clear you were attempting to receive distant stations.
Now that you have described the actual situation, yes, an audio
distribution amplifier would probably be your best option to get a good
audio level into multiple TNCs. There are a number of easy circuits
available with resistive dividers to provide proper isolation and impedance
matching to send audio to multiple devices. There are also home
entertainment systems that have the ability to send amplified audio to
multiple devices. These are readily available for very little cost at
places like Goodwill.  Good luck with your project.
