Well I can't say I wasn't warned. I decided to have the 450D checked at cesars house on a dummy load, because I thought I was doing something wrong with the output power being so low and this is what we  Saw - 6 / 15 / 12meters at 12 watts being set at 100 watts --- 10 meters peaked at 80 to 90watts --- Now 20 meters 40 watts peak and went lower to 20watts on 40meters / 80 meters 15watts and 160 meters less than 10. I spoke with the original owner and he's gonna give me a refund. Now I feel between a rock and a hard place, as I'm now hooked lol, on getting HF back. Have you heard anything bad about the FT991A? Would love to get a IC-7300 but for the price and only HF / 6 meter -Eh... This will mean I have to sell my FT736R, to combine it with the refund. By the way I ordered another the other 2m7 yesterday to stack, what would you recommend for phasing cables, the prices I see are crazy, for such short runs. I understand precision is key, but yikes, heh. Guess you get what you pay for.

Short answer, yes.  A balun.....converts balanced to unbalanced line or vice-versa.  The problem then becomes, what impedance transformation to use.  If the balanced line is going to feed the dipole directly, the actual impedance will likely NOT be 450 ohms.  Simplest method to determine what will work would likely be to feed the balanced line to the balanced line connection on your tuner and see how that works on all the key bands.

 I would like to switch over to it, for my dipole, instead of using coax, is there an connector like a SO-239 to connector with connection to twin led ladder line? w2bqe former KC2DYY suggested making a 6 to 8 inch pigtail with RG8X. Thoughts.? My 736r is on some call this way on 450 SSB
