I have recently made a Fan Dipole using home made 450 Ohm balanced line. I plan on feeding it with 450 Ohm window line. I feel quite confident that this will work (i.e., that I can get away with it with a tuner). I do have a 9:1 Mismatch, however. Is there such thing as a balanced to balanced matching transformer? It does not seem to be addressed in Jerry Sevick's outstanding book, Transmission Line Transformers, 4th Edition. I want the low loss of balanced line. I specifically want to know how one matches a balanced to balanced mismatch. Any Idears?

Thanks, Zack. I'll tap into them. Still a great rig. I'm not what I was 30 years ago either!!

I have a Kenwood TS940S-AT. I have run it on FM in the past, but I cannot remember how to do it. I am wondering if someone has one, and can assist me with better instructions than are in the manual. I must be doing something wrong. Thanks! Bob, WB5EMX

Good comments, Martin, thank you.
I've old and newer Termans. I have relatively old Antenna Books. The answer to much about a good signal is all in feedlines, which can be very, very complicated to understand well. Thus my questions. Again, Martin, Thanks!
