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
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?
