Features: Brand: Palomar Engineers MPN: Bullet-1B-500EB PEP Power Rating (watts): 500 Choking Impedance Range (ohms): up to 6000 Common Mode Attenuation (db): up to 38 dB Estimated Insertion Loss (db): .1 Input Connector Type: SO-239 Output Connector Connector Type: Side Eyebolts New improved version now goes down to 100 KHz and up to 61 MHz < 2:1 SWR. Choose Balun only or add optional dipole wire kit (wire, Insulators, Spade lugs for attachment to balun - assembly required). Center insulator and Balun in one case - 1/4" stainless hardware and 500 real watts rated! The Bullet-1B-500EB is a multi-core current balun with built in feed line choke offering up to 34 dB of common mode current rejection (plenty for most applications) to keep RFI off the coax outer braid. The Bullet-1B-500EB is housed in a compact enclosure (looks like a bullet) that is lightweight and easy to transport for your portable/permanent antenna solution. Halyard hoist at top of balun for convenient attachment point. Input is via SO-239 coax connector and output with dual side eye bolt output and wire strain relief. Rated 500 Watts PEP Watts from .1-61 MHz. Bullet-1B-500EB weight is .85 pounds (14 oz). This balun/feedline choke keeps TRANSMIT RFI off the coax outer braid while transmitting. If your station suffers from common mode RFI noise on RECEIVE, then use one of our Common Mode Coax Noise Filters (such as the CMNF-500-50) that suppresses common mode noise on RECEIVE operations. Make a FAN DIPOLE using optional dipole kits (e.g. 80/40 would use extra 40 meter dipole if you chose the 80 meter dipole lit for this listing).   NOTE: Palomar rates their Bullet Baluns (and ununs) VERY conservatively at 500 watts PEP with a 50% duty cycle. Also Palomar Baluns typically cover a larger frequency range under 2:1 SWR which makes your transceiver happy and probably will last longer with less electrical stress.
