HOW TO BUILD A BALUN 4 TO 1 TUTORIAL. Post #703.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/TI_8msSbpDQ.  This video from "Shlomofir" will show you a simple way to make a voltage fed 4:1 balun for your multiband dipole antenna.  Most of the materials can be obtained from the nearest hardware store or building supply outlet.  The only quibble I have with this otherwise excellent video is the use of a black PVC pipe section for the balun.  Black PVC pipe may contain carbon which could alter the characteristics of the balun.  Stick with a white PVC section for the balun and run low power, and you should be alright.  For the latest amateur radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
