|The 1:1 Current Balun was designed to replace the center
insulator of a dipole antenna. It is made up of 50 Ferrite Core
Beads placed onto a 13-inch piece of RG-303 Coax. Operates 1.8
to 30 MHz.
The coax and SO-239 connectors have Teflon(R) for maximum
insulation and extended life of the product. The MFJ 1:1 Current
Balun is enclosed in schedule 40 PVC pipe for maximum strength
and protection. Unlike other baluns, the MFJ-918 makes a direct
electrical connection to the antenna with #14 copper wire.
The MFJ Current Balun will reduce or eliminate stray RF often
found on coax. This stray RF can cause burns and other problems
with electronic equipment in ham-shacks and vehicles. Stray RF
also results in a loss of radiated power from the antenna, which
will lead to a great reduction in signal strength.
