Attempting to make a balun by coiling coax is a tricky business. The idea with these baluns is to make an inductor with the coil. Because an inductor has an impedance that increases with frequency, it's hoped they will look like a high impedance to common-mode currents on the coax. Unfortunately, a real coil also has capacitance between the turns which ...
