This component is one of the kind on the market. If you are looking for a clean transition from ladder line to coax that is not a've found it. Many aficionados of the G5RV antenna and many manufacturers of G5RV antennas desire a clean transition from 50 ohm coax to 450 ladder ladder as the ladder line and length of coax work together to present 50 ohms at that radio without the help of a balun. Ladder line is attached one one size of the device, the other features a female SO-239 jack for accepting male PL-259 plugs
