No. Then they are outside in the weather and sun.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm putting a Balun Design 1115t on an A4s. Here is the Ozarks, we have

But I want to put a resistor across the antenna side to drain off any
static that develops across the un-grounded element. The A4 is a
balanced feed with not beta or gamma match. Just 2 isolated halves of
the driven element.

47K Ohm?

100K Ohm?

10K Ohm?

Thanks, 73, Jim W7RY
