Let me explain that my advice against using baluns in connection with 
open-wire line was focused on the case of TUNED balanced feeders, i.e. 
where the antenna is operated somewhere off resonance.  Rick Karlquist's 
points are certainly valid for the case of using baluns with a matched 
load.  I hope this clears up some possible confusion.  73 de Allan, W1AEL.
