I built a vertical moxon for 10 meters and it works pretty well, I used a 1:1 balun at the feed point brought the coax directly towards the reflector then down the mast to my station. I haven't had any problems yet<GRIN> my balun is only rated at 200 watts and i wanted to run 400 watts, so I was thinkin about making a direct connection at the feed point and adding some snap on ferrite beads on the coax. Now the real question would I be better off to run the coax directly towards the reflector past the reflector before dropping down to the station rather than dropping down the mast in between the driven element and the reflector??

I have read alot about end feeding the driven element what are the disadvantages??

Always trying to build a better antenna

It will work without the balun but if you are critical about the pattern, it will probably change it some without a balun.

Enough ferrite beads to stop common mode currents IS a balun.

We are Coulomb of Borg. Resistance is futile. Voltage, on the other hand, has potential.
