Should I make a 4:1 balun for a delta loop or a 9:1 balun for an EARCHI end fed?

And when I ask this I mean RIGHT NOW. Obviously I will get both in the future when more toroids arrive.

LOL, i just ordered 4 myself to build a couple of the EARCHI antennas so i say build one of them.

I say EARCHI.  I built one, and it works pretty well.

Got enough parts left over to build a couple more, too.  Something else on the "to do" list.

Ummmm.... yeah.




Not my best work, but it's electrically correct. Now if it would just stop raining I'd try this thing out.

I am quickly coming to the conclusion this antenna may work better on 20m than my not-high-enough G5RV. The receive is definintely 2-3 S units higher. I did throw out a 16' counterpoise just because I'm not using a long enough piece of coax.
