Ferrite (42kb) An Excel program, written by Ron VK2WB, which allows you to design any transformer for use between 1 and 50 MHz using commonly available ferrite toroidal cores.  The program will design transformers (such as baluns) running any power up to 1kW.
Now updated to a newer version FT_calc_1.2.xls.  Also now includes an additional balun program Balun_cmr_1.1.xls, which takes into account the common-mode rejection ratio of a "current balun". Finally another addition is a table (PVI_table.pdf) which relates RF power transformer ratios with voltage, current on/in windings -- it is intended to give guidance on insulation requirements
