I've had Paul's XMatch now for many months;  am super pleased
with it!!  I also have,  for my V-beams, planned for set-up
as soon as the darn trade winds calm down -- up to 36 mph this
afternoon -- an "old" E F Johnson KW Matchbox.  Now that IS
an ugly, very big box!!!  Guess it looked beautiful next to
the desk sized Johnson KW AM rig around 45 years ago!

But if you want the best HF band tuner,  1.8 thru 29.7 mHz,  buy
Paul's tuner.  It might take awhile to get one,  he makes 
them one by one,  carefully obviously!
