Excellent quality and price  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have known Geoff for some time, and all of his products are absolutely first rate quality, will withstand all sorts of abuse and will work as they are intended to.

This is not surprising, as many GWhip products are based on tried and tested commercial designs, which have been sold in large numbers to various governments all around the world.

GWhip Baluns and Ununs are unique in that they utilise special mix ferrite materials, which outperform many other types available to amateur constructors (and small scale manufacturers). PTFE covered wire and high grade materials are used throughout. In order to ensure consistent performance over many years of use.

This can be verified from photographs showing detail of the construction, and in some cases individual measured performance plots, which are shown on the Gwhip website.

I just donít understand why folks continue to buy cheap Baluns and Ununs wound on Iron powder (or similar) core materials that simply do not work properly.

It would be hard to make your own version for the same price - Highly recommended
Product is in production.
