Reviews Summary for Rf-Systems MLB
Rf-Systems MLB Reviews: 1 Average rating: 4.0/5 MSRP: $55euro
Description: The Magnetic Longwire Balun by RF Systems makes it possible
to use a coaxial lead-in cable with all forms of longwire,
Windom-, or other types of wire antenna. The MLB contains a
special impedance matching transformer, which converts any
piece of wire between 6 and 20 metres long into a wide-band
receiving antenna, without the need for an antenna tuner. It
is a simple and effective solution to many antenna problems.
Product is in production.

good mechanics  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is a must for SWL since at least two decades. Rf-Systems was probably the first firm to build a high quality transformer with a very wide bandwidth optimized for SWL.
I have had it for several years. I had used it in a variety of configurations indoor and outdoor. Compared to the MTFT sold by Wimo this is mechanically sturdy made and I have the impression it receives better especially at the lower bands MW and LF. My Wimo disassembled itself over a few years. This appears to be rock solid. I repaired my Wimo balun. My MLB has died now and it seems very difficult to open and repair. It looks just too well made! Ok it died in the end, but after many years. I made myself many ununs and baluns, however I recognize that this small transformer is very convenient. Put it up everywhere you want, use good wire that does not make rust. It will work for years and yaers.
