Toroid for use as HF/VHF balun, unun

A professional-grade core selected and tested by SOTABEAMS for 125 Watt 1:1 and 4:1 baluns; 3 - 50 MHz.

For higher power use, the cores can be stacked.

 

Toroid cores are brittle so avoid banging them against hard surfaces.

 

Toroid core weight = 14 grams

OD = 29 mm ID = 19 mm

Equivalent to type 43 material

 

Typical Application

1:1 Baluns should be wound as shown in the diagram below.

Each pass through the hole in the toroid is a turn.

For 50MHz 3 + 2 turns of RG58 is recommended.

For HF 7 +6 turns of RG174 is recommended.

Hold the ends in place with cable ties.

    Useful Torroid

    Posted by Nick on 20th Oct 2017

    I bought this to make my own 9:1 UnUn for my end-fed wire antenna. It was big enough to get the necessary number of turns which was helpful. Basically it just works! The UnUn tames the impedance so that I can tune 160 - 12 m. I would certainly buy it again.

    I have used some of these rings instead for FT 118-43 and it seems to be similar values.

    The toroid do the job. Not a fake toroid as many in today's market!

    1:1 to 1:1.3 from 3.5 to 28 Mhz.

    Happy with it and I would buy again if necessary.

    Balun core

    Posted by Unknown on 7th Jan 2016

    Just the job.
    Light weight and easy to wind.

    Gave a 1:1 on 80m with no real measurable return current.
    1.3:1 on 10m both at 100W
    Happy with that.

    Would recommend this core to others
