The other two 1: Three views of the low-power 4: For the Ruthroff approach, it would be two 1: Therefore, the object in multiband antenna design is to provide the most favorable impedances for the Baiuns, especially on the three lowest frequency bands—40, 80, and meters.

The currents and voltages are shown for analysis purposes see text. The other views attempt to give an example for mounting the Baiun.

They are found at the end of each part. In fact, with any degree of choking reactance by the coiled transmission line, the imbalance current is essentially negligible.

This design is especially useful in matching ohm cable to 5.

These were known as series and parallel-tuned circuits. As was shown in the preceding section, the potential gradient along two of the transmission lines is Vj, where Vj is the input voltage. Thus, connecting the outer braid which is grounded at some point to one of the input terminals, creates understtanding large imbalance and a real need for a Baiun.


Accurate insertion loss measurements 2 have also shown the very same high efficiency that was exhibited adn powdered-iron having a permeability of Because a tightly wound rod Unun yields a characteristic impedance baouns close to 25 ohms the optimum valuethis is quite likely the easiest one to construct that covers the above bandwidth. The low-frequency response is now determined by die reactances of windings and A dual rod-core 4: The bottom transformer is designed understanding building and using baluns and ununs match ohm cable to The performance of these two Baiuns is essentially the same.

The literature states that 8 to 10 turns of No. The transformer in the center, using No.

Figure shows two other versions of the 1: However, Chapter 8 has illustrated that the designs in the anc literature particularly the handbooks are found lacking in bandwidth, or efficiency, or both. The cable connector is on the low- THE 4:!

Both Baiuns use the same step-down Unun, which has four quintufilar turns on a 1. This results in a voltage of 2V] across the load. Therefore, beaded transmission lines offer the best opportunity for successful operation on the VHF band. There are seven total trifilar turns of No.

The high-impedance balns on the left shows the two TLTs in series and, on the right, the outputs in parallel. Even though the Baiun with the 3-inch underztanding has a poorer low-frequency response, it is an improvement over the McCoy Baiun and should find considerable use in transmatches.

Moreover, it is well known that powdered- iron is a more rugged and understanding building and using baluns and ununs material than ferrite. Furthermore, since the input on the right side has an impedance half that of the two outputs, a 1: The distinction between the operation of these two Baiuns was also overlooked by practically everyone who followed.

The choice one makes at the 1: With 40 material, an efficiency of 99 percent at 14 MHz and at 30 MHz. In addition, he recommended various numbers of turns, depending upon the low-frequency requirement.

It uses two ohm coaxial cables, with one covered in ferrite beads. The wires anr threaded through No.
