Baluns are widely used to connect balanced transmission line circuits to unbalanced ones.
Suitable loads are placed between the transmission line feed and the dish in order to reduce reflections and provide the matched load required of the BTW (balanced transmission line wave).
To achieve the out-of-phase features, much research has been conducted and different balanced transmission lines have been investigated [14-17].
