I'd use a Balun Designs 1115t for that exact application. Use an appropriate sized Tywrap, some Scotch 88 and be done with it. I've had my pre-MFJ XM240 using the stock balun, but if doing it again I'd go for the aforementioned balun.

 I want to replace the 12 turn coax balun and coax on my older Cushcraft 2 el 40.  Has anyone used the balun from the later XM-240?  I don't see a rating on it and might look for a 4 or 5KW balun (1 to 1).  Anyone used another balun successfully on the beam?  If so I am looking for one with wires to hook to the driven element center and has a coax connector on the side that goes to the shack. I also need to know how it is held on the boom.  I plan on using tape to hold the balun on top of the boom.

Thanks in advance for the help.
