|Subject:||[TowerTalk] Hy-Gain TH7DX Balun?|
|Date:||Wed, 29 Dec 2004 10:49:19 -0500|
I read the archive re. a 2002 discussion of balun options for the Hy-Gain TH7DX, and similar beams.
I have just acquired a very used TH7DX needing some aluminum repair and thought I'd revisit the balun question while it is on the ground and under renovation!
I understood from the discussion that some sort of current balun is preferred to the BN-86 voltage balun.
1. I will be running full legal as needed.
2. Installed in West Central Florida so it won't see ice but will see some heavy gusting winds (55-60MPH just the other day!), not to mention the occasional hurricane.
3. It will be mounted on a tiltover, so it will be lowered and strapped down when heavy weather is forecast.
4. It will see lots of lightning.
Does any of that impact the choice of balun design?
