Small Baluns

toroid baluns

Small, light baluns for 80m-10m, maximum 100 W PEP (CW or SSB). The baluns are in a plastic case fitted with snap-on lid, with vents on the bottom. The covers are not glued, the baluns are therefore not permanently waterproof. If in doubt, helps a soapbox ...
Models with ratio 1:1 and 1:4 are 'normale'Baluns. The design is a 1:9 Unun ('MTFT') with lateral mass screw. The baluns have input side, a PL jack, the output side studs M4 stainless steel, and weigh only about 65 grams

MTFT Magnetic Balun

MTFT Magnetic Balun
MTFT Magnetic Balun

Be on the air with just some meters of wire!
Can be used wit hreduced efiiciency up to 150 MHz

Principle of operation:
Usual internal tuners or external tuner only have a limited impedance range. The matching of a short wire (short in comparision to the wavelength) with it's high impedance is usually not possible.
Futher the wire is usually outdoors, the tuner sits in the shack, but the wire cannot be connectied to the tuner with a coax feed... Here a wire tuner like the SGC products will help - at a price!. But there is a more economic alternative.

The MTFT is a resistance transformer with a ratio of 1:9. It reduces the extremely high impedance of a short wrie to a range which can be matched with a normal tuner. The balun must be used right at the antenna wire, don't use coax to feed the wire. The MTFT is then connected with a coax to the tuner, the SWR on this line is usually below 3:1, losses through resonant waves are low.

The required wire length should be at least 6m. Ground connection is good, connect ground with a clamp to the ground of the PL connector, not to the insulated case. If no ground can be used at the balun at least the transceiver should be grounded. If necessary use a common mode filter right below the balun. Instead of a ground connection a counterpoise can be used.

F6JSZ installed a 20m long windom, fed with the MTFT at one third from the end, 20m coax to the rig. He writes in french "CQ" that he had a SWR better then 1.5:1 on all amateur bands and didn't require a tuner.
But the MTFT cannot only be used with a wire but with any metallic object - water pipes, rain pipes or CB antennas (remove matching elemens of the antenna before use). The MTFT is an excellent tool for the experiemntal amateur...
Of course the MTFT can be used for transmission, max. power load is 100 W PEP.

For shortwave listeners the MTFT is an ideal accessory: a simple wire connected to the world band receiver is very badly matched, resulting in only mediocre efficiency. With the MTFT the match is greatly improved. An additional matching unit is not required.

Kelemen Baluns

Our baluns have a bolted, clear polycarbonate case and are not filled with insulating plastic like other baluns. This makes the production of these baluns much more expensive, also because we still have to make the baluns weather resistant, but this method has a clear benefit: In case of an 'accident' you can fix the balun yourself. And it is much lighter than other, conventional baluns. Each balun has a hook formounting and is equipped with a PL socket.

Antenna wires

High Grade Antenna Wire Silver coated with steel center

  • High Tensile Strength
  • Excellent Conductivity
  • More Power
  • Larger Bandwidth

The HFW-2 is a high quality antenna wire for the construction of antennas. Whether you want to build a dipole, a wire beam, a long wire, a quad or a Deltaloop - with this strand can solve many of the usual problems.

HFW-2 is stranded on a stainless steel core with 1.5 mm Ø. It is a silver-coated copper mesh with 2.1 mm outer diameter. Due to the steel core in a very high tensile strength, such measures can also be very long, free-hanging antennas as Beverages, dipoles etc. taut tension. The silver-coated copper braid provides excellent conductivity. This helps especially at the dipole center, where high currents can occur at high power.

In contrast of other 'premium" wires with smaller diameters the HFW-2 strand is made ​much more robust and is, for example, also used in military antennas. The larger diameter provides larger bandwidths with dipole antennas. The silver coating of dense copper braiding provides excellent conductivity in order to handle higher power.

The outer jacket is made of a special UV-resistant PVC with 3 mm outer diameter.

All in all, the HFW-2 wire is an excellent alternative "Made in Europe" to other antenna wires. Durable, high tensile strength, weather proof, high power, relatively easy - better an antenna wire hardly be.
