  balun 
 
    A  transformer  connected  between  a  balanced 
  source  or  load  and  an  unbalanced  source  or  load.  A  balanced 
  line  has  two  conductors,  with  equal  currents  in  opposite 
  directions.  The  unbalanced  line  has  just  one  conductor;  the 
  current  in  it  returns  via  a  common  ground  or  earth  path.
