The voltage, V, dependences of the differential tunnel conductance G(V) were calculated for two kinds of junctions involving normal and superconducting charge-density-wave metals (CDWMs) in the external magnetic field H. The first is a non-symmetrical junction with a CDWM electrode being biased with respect to a ferromagnet. Calculations show that the paramagnetic splitting occurs between spin-up and spin-down components of G(V), similar to what is observed when a superconducting electrode is used instead of the CDWM one. The second setup is symmetric (CDWM-I-CDWM), where I denotes an insulator. If at least one of the CDWM electrodes is normal and H≢0, G(V) will also be spin-split.
