Hybrid Balun Testimonial

"I built the Hybrid Balun as described by OCF Masters and in a recent article in CQ magazine. The build was easy, I sourced parts from Mouser and bought the antenna wire in a spool and the gray 5X5 electrical box from Lowes. Stainless hardware was purchased at my local ACE hardware store.  Building the balun took a couple of hours using the clear instructions and color photos in CQ. The antenna is now up about 45 feet horizontally. The SWR is great, with numbers so low that I do not need a tuner on the CW portions of all the bands 80 through 10. But the real proof is that this antenna works great - it hears well and gets my QRP signal out well. Thanks!"
