I am planning on taking down my multi-fan dipole fed with rg8x and replacing with rg-213. Currently I have 18' of rg8x wound around 4" pvc for my balun. I like the idea of the Palomar ferrite 1:1 choke and was wondering if anyone has useed them before and if they work well. It would save several feet of coax and a larger pipe to have to wind around. There are two links below......one for Palomar and the other for Parts Express. I was wondering also if the 1/2" ferrite cores from Parts express wouldn't do the same thing. ...5 or 6 cores linked together then shrink wrap over them.

Almost without reservation, everything that Jack makes and sells, it top notch. Yes, I've known the man for many years, but that fact hasn't tainted my outlook. Although I've never assembled one of his kits, I still use a 1:1 balun/center support I purchased nearly 40 years ago. Along with a few of his broadcast stuff, a noise bridge, and numerous pieces.

The only unfortunate part of Jack's business, is the similarity in name to Palomar Electronics, the maker of a bunch of CB illegal crapola.

I wondered if it were the same company.....couldn't figure out why there were no cb amps on his webpage. Makes me feel a little better. That type of balun just seems simple, NEAT and I like the idea of keeping my coax as short as possible.

I am using two of these baluns on a piece of RG-8 for a choke balun at the output of my tuner.
