Another superb balun  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I switched over to an OCF dipole recently and was having troubles with common mode currents which were caused by the cheap current balun that I was using to match my RG-8X coax at the feedpoint. I contacted Bob at Balun Designs and and he recommended his new hybrid model, the #4116, It features two baluns in one box. One is an isolation balun to keep my feedline from radiating and the other is a 4:1 balun to provide the proper matching to my coax.
After I replaced the cheaper balun with this 4116 model I noticed that the feedback problem was solved. The new balun works very well and it seems that I also have lower noise levels on 160 and 80 meters. I am very pleased with my purchase and I highly recommend Balun Designs if you are considering a balun for your antenna system. I also suggest that you visit Bob's website. It is excellent and provides a great deal of helpful information to assist you in selecting what balun best meets your needs.
