I've been involved in re-doing the low band antennas at KC1XX the last few
months in preparation for the upcoming contest season.  I helped install
four 2-wire Beverages which use the K1FZ KB-2 feed box.  The 160, 80, and
40 meter stations will be using the Beverages.  I have to agree the
performance and construction quality of Bruce's boxes are excellent.  Also,
Bruce has been very good about providing "tech support" for his products.
For those of you doing 2-wire Beverages, he also now has a reflection
transformer product, the KB-3.  In general reflection transformers will
give you much better F/B than simply tying one of the wires directly to
ground, which is what most people do.  At KC1XX we saw a big improvement in
performance when we changed over to reflection transformer terminations
(our own homebrew units) for all the Beverages.  BTW, I have no commercial
interest or affiliation with K1FZ.
