I don't disagree with using the Johnson Matchbox, or using a coax fed dipole. I also have one of those KW matchboxes (it's not for sale) and in past years used coax fed dipoles, but they/it does not tune the frequencies I need to tune, MARS 4.5 Mhz, 3.3 Mhz etc. I know I can cut feedline or lengthen it, I've already wasted a bunch of feedline and time doing just that. The Palstar BT1500 tunes the frequencies I need to tune and better after I added the choke balun. The balun I installed at the recommendation of Paul at Palstar did work. Regardless if it's proper or not makes no difference to me, it worked and that's ALL that matters.
BTW, I don't have acres of property to experiment with various wire antennas and dedicated dipoles either.
