the indulgence!"

The large number of Towertalk posts relating to ferrite-core 
common-mode chokes, baluns, and transformers (which often are 
different names for the same thing) says that this is a mainstream 
topic.  Every ham with a tower needs at least one ferrite-core 
choke/balun/transformer (and if anyone doesn't think so, I'll try to 
educate him).

The number of posts about burned-out and broken ferrite 
chokes/baluns/transformers has also been substantial.  Ferrite is 
expensive and worth salvaging; yet few of us knew why, how, or how 
well it could be done; so I found this thread very worthwhile.  I 
hope that it was not just indulgence that kept Steve from squelching
