I have a Radio Works Line Isolator.   I THINK it is a piece of coax, with ferrite beads installed, in a case.   Coax connectors on each end.   

I have an "Ugly Balun" (coax would on a big coil, closely spaced).

I could use the "Ugly Balun" as a means of connecting my cox to the downlead (450 ohm twinlead) of a G5FV.   

Would using the Radio Works Line Isolator work just as well in this application?

Using the Radio Works Line Isolator Will give me a sleeker looking installation.

Try it and see which one works better.

The ferrite "line isolator" should be much better than the ugly balun.

Thanks for the thoughts!    I'll use the "line isolator".   

It'll be a much cleaner installation.
