You din't get it Tom,
we are not talking about "Bazooka" dipole, but Bazooka quarter wave coax 
balun connected to antenna and fed with coax. Read my first posting and K7GCO 
explanation again. I got it about 30 years ago, used it, measured it and it 
works as described. Also it provides balun function and selective band filter 
very handy in SO2R or multi TX setups (good only for monoband antennas).
I am not atacking you, but pointing out some (wrong) "gospel" claims you 
sometimes make.
