I NEED TO KNOW WHERE I CAN FIND A SIMPLE SET OF DIRECTIONS FOR BUILDING A HOMEBREW 4-1 CURRENT BALUN TO BE UTILIZED ON A 266' LOOP, FED WITH LADDER LINE. ALSO AT WHAT POINT IN THE FLOW CHART WOULD YOU PLACE THE BALUN. NOTE: I HAVE ALREADY SEARCHED THE NET FOR INFO; HOWEVER, I ONLY FIND CONPLICATED DIRECTIONS TO THE INFINITEUM!!!!! HAVE MERCY AND HELP.

Here is a page on building 4:1 current baluns with photographs. The better designs typically use two separate toroids.
