BASICQWW balun originally designed by Guanella, Ruthroff and subsequently improved by Dr. Jerry Sevick (W2FMI). We have enhanced the original by using an enclosure and various connector configurations that allow easy installation with just about any antenna installation. BASICQWW baluns are value-engineered to provide maximum performance at minimum cost, while providing a superb, efficient match between unbalanced coax and balanced antennas. Only BASICQWW baluns will deliver the power to your antenna with minimum loss and perform a perfect transition from balanced to unbalanced. This will result in the strongest signal that your antenna is capable of producing consistently with the lowest SWR under given conditions and to provide a very high power rating across all HF frequencies.
