Disclaimer ; If you tend to be annoyed by lack of knowledge, please scroll on! I am a sound engineer, I have very limited knowledge in RF and analog circuits. I try to read and watch tutorials, but I get lost very quickly as I don't speak the basics of this language.

The project ; I am building a small 2 way distribution box for my 2 wireless microphone receivers.

Path ; Dipole antenna -> Balun -> 2 way Power Splitter - 2X female SMAs output -> wireless receivers.

The question ; I know this is elementary school for most of you, I just need someone to point me out which pins to connect where.

I got myself a mini-circuit 1:1 transformer and a 2 way power splitter. I am good at soldering, but I just don't know technically how to connect everything.

Here is my thinking, please tell me where I am wrong.

So we start with the 2 Dipole elements, one goes in the Primary of the balun, the other one goes in the secondary.
At the other side of the balun, Primary Dot becomes my main "signal", Secondary Dot connects to ground of the hole circuit.
Then my main signal enters the "S" port of the splitter, and the splitter is attached to ground that carries the signal from the other sides of the dipole (?)
Then at the exit of the Splitter, I attach 2 SMAs, that are grounded as well.

Here below the schematic of my 2 units.

Thank you so much for your help, it is very much appreciated.
