MFJ-918BP, MFJ-2919BP, and MFJ-2920BP 1.5 kW, 1.8-30 MHz Portable Balun Introduction: Without a balun, the outer surface of your coax shield provides a common-mode path for transmitted RF to flow from the antenna down to your operating location. Here, it can disrupt or damage sensitive electronics and, if severe, may even change the antenna's radiation pattern, distort your transmit audio, or cause a painful RF burn. On receive, the process is reversed, with stray locally generated carriers and "hash" traveling up the cable to the feedpoint to raise the noise floor and cover weak signals. Description: The MFJ-918BP, MFJ-2919BP, and MFJ-2920BP are especially packaged to provide balun protection for portable installations. Antenna wire or ladder line is connected to the PVC housing using color-coded 5-way binding posts for rapid installation and removal. Color coded terminals indicates the DC path through the MFJ-918BP (red = center conductor, black = shield). Note that the MFJ-2919BP and MFJ-2920BP have internal transformer connections that appear as a DC short between antenna terminals. On the inside, highpermeability ferrite beads are installed over RG-303 Teflon coax to ensure high power handling, maximum suppression, and minimal signal loss. Chemically welded PVC construction guarantees long life under adverse environmental conditions. Coax attaches to a premium grade Teflon SO-239. Models: [ ] MFJ-918BP: A 1:1 ratio 50-Ohm current balun designed to minimize losses and deliver superior suppression over the entire HF range. Dipole or G5RV feed connects directly to 5-way terminals. [ ] MFJ-2919BP: A 4:1 ratio transmission-line transformer style balun designed for 200-Ohm loads. Especially adapted for portable folded dipoles and OCFDs. [ ] MFJ-2920BP: A 9:1 ratio transmission-line transformer design for 450-Ohm applications. May also be used for transitions to ladder line. Installation: The PVC balun enclosure may be secured with a hose clamp, taped, or tethered to any portable mast, post, or tower to serve as a center insulator for a temporary antenna. When installing, always support the balun enclosure vertically with the weep hole facing toward the ground to ensure proper drainage. Important Warning: To prevent accidental death or serious injury, never install an antenna where it can contact power lines. Also, to prevent dangerous RF burns, keep energized antenna surfaces out of reach to humans and animals.
