Roger - if u use a tuner use one that is 6m capable. it should go between the
antenna and the transverter. A tuner with multiple inputs (use one for HF and
the other for 6m) is a good bet.
Use caution when using transverter and tuner setup - it's much better to get
the antenna to a good match and not use the tuner. it's VERY easy to fry the
transverter finals when using a tuner - I speak from practical experience.
you would probably be better off if you could use a monoband 6m antenna.
