A 1:4 current balun is a handy device if you use 450 ohm ladder line, 300 ohm television twin lead, or homebrewed 600 ohm balanced line to feed your antenna. In this video from N7JFP, we see how to make a simple 1:4 HF Current Balun with 15 turns per side.  This balun uses a T-130-2 toroid and 18 gauge copper wire. N7JFP says this is a low power device (around 5 watts) suitable for 20 and 40 meters.
