I have one of these beasts. The manual doesn't tell you much. They're not
a very complex device.
1) Don't put 12V on the motor, it will burn out. The switch box has a big
resistor in series to drop the voltage.
2) With a 10ft whip, it won't tune 160, but will tune all other bands.
3) The "matching network" is a 1:4 transformer with a fair amount of
leakage capacitance, so as the frequency gets higher, the transformer fades
out of the system.
4) Good ground to the car body is essential.
What do you need to know?
