Reviews Summary for N9HRP 4:1 Balun for Windom/OCF Antennas 2KW
Reviews: 1 Average rating: 5.0/5 MSRP: $29.95
Description: This is a center connection for OCF dipole or inverted vee antennas. Unlike other products, this one comes with flying leads to facilitate direct connections to the antenna wire to avoid "scratchiness" in the receiver from antenna movement in the wind. The RF connector is the standard SO-239 for use with standard 52-75 ohm coaxial feedlines. A top eye bolt is included for center mounting in an inverted V configuration. The side eye bolts allow for a variety of antenna mounting angles without wire pinching. The side eye bolts also allow for the connection of additional wire legs to support multband antenna designs. Great for building your own OCF or Windom antenna.

The center insulator is weather-proof to protect the balun. All joints are soldered. The SO-239 connector is secured with 4 screws so it will take the load of heavy coax. Comes with heavy duty 14 gauge antenna connection leads. It is built with the same durable materials and solid construction as the complete antennas.

The built-in 4:1 balun has an input impedance of 50 ohms for use with standard coaxial feedline (RG-58, RG-8/U, etc.). This balun is built around the popular and high-quality FT-140-61 ferrite core for coverage from 100 khz. to 150 mhz.. Power handling capacity is conservatively rated at 1kw RMS, 2kw PEP. Efficiency is 99% or greater across the frequency spectrum.
Product is in production.

Great  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I have used several of these for OCF dipoles. The build quality is excellent. The price is great compared to other balun's i have priced for off center feed dipoles. I would highly recommend buying from this guy. Customer service has been top notch with every order. I have also used his line insulators for adding a vertical radiator. Well worth taking a look at.
