Hi Tony!

See if you can borrow a different balanced feed antenna tuner as a test.
Maybe there is a problem with your ATR-30. 

Your antenna should work great, so don't give up!

Can somone help me out, i have a 450 ohm ladder line dipole i made. both
sides are exactaly 123 feet and the 450 ohm line is 47 feet to the atr-30 to
the balance terminals. the ladder line is away from any metal objects, its a
foot away from the gutter with a stand off. I can not tune this antenna what
so ever. it doesnt even move, its fixed at past 6:1 swr. What am i missing
here. I am so upset as i put a lot of effort into the errecting and
construction, can someone shed some light. I even tried a 4:1 balun with no
sucess. any help would be greatly apreciated, thanks guys.
