Don't think I have tried a balun with the hamstick dipole. I only have a pair of 75M and then single 40 & 20 ones.
Another suggestion which in no way is diverting from the topic. You may want to check out my article (http://www.eham.net/articles/22237
) "What Antenna Restrictions?" I too needed a solution to my unemployment/trailer park situation and decided to document what I came up with. I hope it helps!!
