I am in the process of building stacks with various KT 34s and KT 34XAs that 
I have acquired and have been rebuilding.  I am planning on stacking them 
using the Stackmatches by WX0B. 
Most of the 4:1 baluns are either not marked with the typical + and - 
markings that are usually appear on the KLM baluns.  In addition, the one 
previously installed KT 34XA is at 65 feet and is inaccessable to check any 
+/- markings.

Someone told me a while back that in stacking the KLMs it was imperative to 
keep the + on the same side for the entire stack.  Is this so, and if it is 
what is the reason for doing so?  I know you can check the balun with the MFJ 
259 to determine which side is which and plan to do so but does it really 
make a difference?
