"Another advantage to switching L networks is that it's fast. In a contest
you don't want to wait for an antenna to adjust."
Honestly, that's why I bothered with this:
instead of just sticking this out at the base:
I just switch bands too much to twiddle knobs. A relay-based autotuner
would be nearly as fast and a relay based memory tuner would be even faster,
and equivalent to what I did, but it didn't take too long to hack together
my networks. Had lots of caps lying around though.
