You might want to Google "choke balun" and think about doing that if you get interference in your shack from RF on the feedline, though at low power it might not be a problem - just a thought.
Yeah, thanks! I am researching THE UGLY BALUN right now... I have leftover PVC and coax... And I think I am getting RF...
