Yes, some of the Thunderbolts shipped have splitters mounted on
the frame. These were used for the 10 MHz output of the original
E911 application.

Some were small splitters with outside screws, others were larger
and screwed from the inside.

There's no problem opening up the TBolt case and removing the
MCL screws from the inside.

No problems. It's easy. Take the DB9 and BNC screws off too.
