I've burned up BN-86s and had problems with the W2DU type baluns. Come to
think of it,
over the years, baluns have been a dependable source of problems! I've finally
and gone back to what I used to use and what you are wondering about: a choke
several turns of coax. I've never had any problems with that simple and
device. Why do we keep buying baluns?
