Okey-doke. Now, could I take a 300-75 balun that you'd find on
rabbit ears and turn it around ?
eg http://www.dse.co.nz L4456 (indoor type, socket + spades)
or http://www.dse.co.nz L4465
"TV Balun Indoor/Outdoor- For matching 75 Ohm coaxial cable to
300 ohm ribbon terminals on your TV tuner or antenna. It's weather-
resistant so can be used indoors or out"
I have an exterior VHF/UHF mixer too. Would that help ?
