Amphenol PL-259 connectors were used. I am quite  confident that all mechanical 
connections and dimensions as well as parts  placement are correct.  I am not 
certain about the Balun and can only  hope that is the problem, think it can be 
changed on the antenna without  taking the whole thing down. Anyone had a 
similar problem?  Is the Balun  bad? 

        Probably. You've got a  pretty simple system - coax, balun and 
antenna. My bet's on the balun. You can't  test them. The only thing you can do is 
try another and see if the condition  changes.
