For additional information you might find W4RNL's article

worth your time.

  Use this formula to calculate your open 600 ohm Lecher
line as a function of wire gauge and distance. Keep the line
away from ground, otherwise you must introduce other factors
as hight and the formulae has some more complexity Zc (600)=
276Log( 2D/d)
  where D is  the distance between the wires.
             d wire gauge expessed in the same unit as the

  On each end you have to use a impedance transformer 1/12
unbalanced to balanced.
  Some one else can tell you wich type of core to use,
number of turns depends upon the type of core.
  If this is not correct one would correct me please. Did
not use these formulae for quite a number of years.
