Subject: [TenTec] Tuner Questions


I obtained a 238B tuner (which matches my Orion II perfectly colour wise) 
about a year ago and have been very happy with it.  I run an extended Zep 
antenna with ladderline and the 238B is able to match the antenna system 
impedance on all the HF bands with ease.  The TenTec design is easy to tune 
and seems to have a wider bandwith for any given settings so re-tuning is a 
snap.  The rotating inductor is smooth and much superior to the MFJ types 
(no comparison really).

Opinions about any of the Ten-Tec 238 series tuners are wanted. I'll take 
the good, bad or indifferent?
