T2 = 1:1 Z Transmission Line Transformer, using 50 coax.
Coax = 22" of mini 50 PTFE coax, OD = .095"
A large 2-hole balun core was constructed by gluing two Fair-Rite #2643102002, i = 850 cores together.
The transformer is constructed by winding 4.5 turns of the coax around the center of the balun core.
