It can probably tune a vertical as well as anything else.

And, as previously noted, it too is in the couple of kilobuck class 
(plus, that control cable is going to be pricey.. )

But, this kind of thing is what's needed.

(and, it could make a heck of a component for a steerable phased array.. 
  you'd need one of these for each element plus some more to build the 
phasing networks... if anyone's interested in spending a few tens of $K 
on such a system, let me know..)
