OK Lets first say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Now, I just made a 9:1 transformer from a donut ferrite (I am pretty sure it is
Amidon 43 if I remember what he said) that another
Ham sent me (I think off this list) a while back.
Anyway, I made it from an article that I downloaded from a link one of you guys
sent me. So thanks very much for all the responses
and the information all of you have shared with me and it looks just like the
article so hoping it will work.
It really wasn't too hard to make although I had to hunt for the super glue and
my hands started to cramp after a little while (but
guess you get used to that and it wears off after a while).
Now I go to a link on ebay
and saw where a guy is selling in the UK a BALUN which he says it 9:1 for
beverages, long wires, ect and it doesn't look a thing
like mine I just built. Now keep in mind mine is a matching transformer and he
is calling his a BALUN.
Guess I am not understanding the difference of why one would use a 9:1 BALUN vs
a matching transformer. Since his looks completely
different than mine a transformer and BALUN must not be the same thing.
