Baluns, ununs and transformers KE8MDJ on 22/6/19
I am a "newbe" in ham radio.
I think I understand Baluns and ununs. However, I have heard and watched videos regarding transformers.
Can someone explain in simple terms the use and need for transformes? Please remember, this is all new to this 73 year old man.

I am a "newbe". My rig is an Icom 7300 using a 4 band Diapole antenna.
I have been considering home brewing my next antenna. I have read MANY articales and have watched numerous videos on how to build Baluns and unun. I believe I can do that successfully.
My question regards the purpose and use of transformers. Being a new ham, I would like a simple answer.
Thanks.
