I have posted about baluns on here before yet after reading about them in the arrl antenna handbook I still cannot seem to get a clear photo of what one looks like. The arrl book has a picture but it is small non detailed and is black and white. Would anyone know where I could see a 4:1 balun online in a photo that is close up? I have looked before yet all I tend to run across are ads for companies wishing to sell premade baluns. Thank you to everyone in advance for replies.

Transmission Line Transformers by Jerry Sevic, W2FMI is good book on baluns.. The ARRL used to offer it buit I am not sure if they still do. I built many of them and can offer some insight as to how they work if you are interested in another angle on them. 73, Pete
