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.
Here are a few photos and web sites.

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
