VERY good advice. As it turns out, I'm about 90% done with a
tutorial on RFI and ferrites that includes a discussion of baluns, a
lot of measured data, and specific advice on troubleshooting RFI and
"rolling your own" choke baluns. It is on my website as an "advanced
first draft." You can download it as a pdf.
Comments are appreciated.
