The balun-fed dipole is the first antenna released in Antenna Magus that was validated exclusively with respect to a design fabricated and measured by Antenna Magus engineers. This was done as no published reference with measurements was available.
"Practical" and "simple" are the two words that best describe this antenna, which forms the basis for many base-station antennas, where low-cost and robust antenna elements are required. This antenna can be used in an array to achieve higher gain and beam-steering capabilities.

The inclusion of an integrated balun in the Antenna Magus design and exported models makes it really easy to design and build a practical antenna in minimal time and with minimal effort.
