The company's definition of success is that the unit doesn't fail destructively -- that is, overheat and destroy itself. Perfect as a business philosophy if the only test instrument your customer owns is an SWR meter and maybe an antenna analyzer. The problem is that their primary effect is to transfer dollars from the buyer to the seller.

I don't sell anything, and have no relationships with anyone who does. My own designs, based on extensive research and lab work and published for free, are vastly superior to any commercial products I know of and easy to build.

A friend of mine replaced a troublesome Maple Leaf design balun on his OCD
dipole with a Balun Design unit and is pleased with the result.
