Complete 1:1 BalUn DIY kit for dipole antenna’s.
1:1 BalUn 800 Watt DIY kit, with solid tensile stools. With a handy fixing plate for the toroid, so no longer necessary for gluing.
The dipole antenna still remains the primal antenna. Certainly in a fixed setup this antenna has its advantages. The antenna is symmetrical so that the noise level will in many cases be quieter compared to asymmetric antennas. By using a good BalUn, Common mode current are prevented, which also reduces interference from your direct environment. The symmetrical properties do not require Earth or counter poise capacity.
The main reason for using a BalUn is to make sure that the coax cable is not part of the antenna system and that it will radiate undesirable. This has all sorts of nasty effects, think of: interference, EMI, RFI disrupted radiation pattern of the antenna, restless noise level. This last point is because not only does the coax cable’s shield radiate when you transmit, but the shield also works as a receiving antenna.
