Hi all...
I have recently purchased an old Ten Tec L network ant tuner..the one that was 
in kit form many years ago.
I have noticed that when feeding it to a 22 ft elevated ground plane on 80 
meters (yeah I know, really a mismatch) via 450 ohm twin lead that the swr will 
drift on 80 meters and the 2 kv ceramic caps on the cap switch will get really 
Will switching the caps to transmitting micas alliviate the problem??
Bad switch??
80 meters on this particular antenna apparently is the only band this occurs 
with this transmatch...my 238A does not exhibit this little problem when 
feeding the same antenna.
