Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JustTheFacts Did the job
I used it outdoors to connect a TV antenna to the RG6 cable. I did not like that they changed the product so that instead of stripped wire at the tip, it has 2 metal circular loops. The latter requires me to completely unscrew/remove the wingnut so that I can attach it to the two connectors on the antenna. This is a good way of losing the wing-nut if you drop it on the grass, and also a waste of time.

I made a Gray-Hoverman antenna with reflector and this was a critical piece to allow me to have a powerful antenna to pick up channels from Atlanta despite having hills/mountains in the way. This has helped me cut cable by utilizing Tablo for OTA DVR and also using SlingTV to get my cable/internet bill down from $170 per month to under $50.

Home Depot was the only place I could find this particular item. It was easy to install, and works great' Received the item in reasonable time, and in good condition.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RAK Worked Great and Lowest Cost
Experimenting with a do-it-yourself antenna and needed a balun. Not readily available but found several on-line for a wide variety of prices. Picked this one based on HD reviews - cautioned against quality of some others based on cheap construction and with pick-up in store option at no extra cost it actually was the cheapest. Worked as intended and cheapest total cost.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DIYPRO Poor performance
First of all, the item I received doesn't match the one shown on the picture. The actual product comes with soldered flat round contacts on both leads, which is better electrically wise, and the shape of the body resembles any standard outdoor balun, not like the one on homedepot.com picture at all. It did not perform as expected compared to a standard indoor balun. It seems to offer poor matching and/or high through loss when compared to a standard indoor transformer. Test result suggests the Channel Master balun is half efficient than a standard RCA indoor balun. In two tests my antenna received 11 channels with the indoor RCA balun against 6-7 channels with the CM.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by image I would Pass
It was not the one in the picture that I received. In fact I do not think it is a channel master. Seems to block out some of the channels. I will return it and if I were you I would pass on it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brent Well constructed...I'll be buying a couple more.
This outdoor transformer is beefy and well constructed...definitely seems that it will be pretty waterproof.
