Understanding, Building, and Using Baluns and Ununs
A couple of weeks ago, I had a post about needing to build a balun to use with my loop. I am trying to do more remote operation, and obviously with a manual tuner it makes it difficult. The manual tuner has a built in balun that allows me to use my loop with dual rg-6 coax.
I did a little research and found that many ham’s reccomended Understanding, Building, and Using Baluns and Ununs by Jerry Sevick, W2FMI. I went on Ebay and found a copy for 49.00 and purchased it using Buy Now. Well long story short, I never did receive the copy and after about 3 or 4 weeks Ebay refunded my money since the seller wouldn’t respond to my or their messages.
So I went back on Ebay and no copies were listed this time. I checked Amazon and several people had copies, but most started at $150.00 or more. So I went back and checked. It was originally available from CQ magazine. I went to their website and lo and behold, they just got in a new printing of the book. So for $19.95 plus shipping you can purchase a brand new copy of it here.
I have my reading set out for me the next couple of nights. I will let you know what I learn and more importantly what I build.
