Just finished reading Tim Duffy's article on comparing the balun (100 Amidon 
beads on a length of Teflon double shielded silver coax ), versus a standard 
W2DU type.

Is this still the way to go for a 1:1 choke balun, I will be using it on a HF 
log-Periodic and will fasten it to the bottom boom which is grounded. The one I 
have on there now is a 24 bead unit , and I guess it was OK...and I don't want 
a "Collins Loop" (takes too much of a beating hanging off the front of the 
double boom.....

 Do we have a better "Mouse Trap in 2008"??
