Two different methods of measuring the balance quality of baluns are described. Section I describes the balance comparator, a mechanical test device requiring only a signal source, and receiver to perform the measurements on the test balun. Section II describes the use of a network analyzer, computer controlled to plot out all the graphical data on the balun measurements. Measurements on a balun having known balance characteristics show both methods obtain satisfactory balance data.
