Voltage balun or Current balun.  With out any fancy clamp on RF current meters 
and the sort, what are some simple things can the average ham can do to 
determine if a Current balun or a Voltage balun is needed when working on 
different types of wire antennas fed with eather coax or open line?

Proper way of doing things is to use a voltage balun at the feed point of the 
antenna followed by a current balun, right?  Now there is a beast called a 
Hybrid balun that take the place of the combo.  Who sells this Hybrid?  Is this 
the best way to go?  Why?
