Now you've done it. Don't let Kurt hear you say that.

Interestingly, he just addressed a similar issue in his last column.

I am a user of random length dipoles and truly balanced tuners. I am 8 
countries away from 5BDXCC with that (OK, I have a Hy-Tower too,) and 
100W. Anyway, I used to fight tuning the wires, lengthening and 
shortening them, because I believed that the more turns of inductance 
and the more meshed the capacitors were, the more I was "losing in the 

Not true. See the last issue of "Worldradio" for an explanation.
