Baluns and Chokes: Ham Radio Q and A Episode 3. Post 1853.


If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpUSe0yrxjs.

In this video, Michael Martens (KB9VBR) discusses baluns and chokes and how these components can prevent RF energy from traveling down the outside of your coaxial cable and creating needless interference to your electronic equipment.

Michael does an excellent job of explaining common mode currents, baluns, and RF chokes.  If you use coaxial cable to feed your HF/VHF/UHF antennas, then this video is for you. Keep a copy of this video in your reference library and refer to it whenever you need a balun or choke for your antenna system.
