I am tying to catch up with my reading.  I had a tuner made for open feed line 
feeding an 80M folded dipole.  I had 2 roller inductors in series with the feed 
line.   I found that sweet point, balance on the coil and link.  I cannot 
remember if I had to touch the caps on the coil.  If I did, it was not much.

Now I moved to new QTH not practical for open feed line and bought a tuner just 
to tune coax.  I am on my 4th coax tuner, its the Tec-Tec 253.  "L" Networks 
make the most sense to accomplish proper tuning, and very pleased with it.  Its 
a keeper.   I sure miss that old open line tuner.  Or should I?

 Keep The Faith, Jim K9TF/WA9YSD
