Good point about tuning a ground wire!
Ten Tec makes a ground tuner in a fine little kit.  Using their toroid from
their L net tuner of many years.  For $49, it was a great buy a few years
back.  I reconfigured it to do both jobs, as a series ground wire tuner, and
as an L network antenna tuner.  Simple circuit mod and added one BNC
connector in place of a standoff insulator.   The L is the variable element.

Good to mention the tuning of a shorter wire if you cannot fit quarter wave
wire into your shack as a counterpoise around the baseboards.
