Now you have my attention, I have a tuner. One built into the rig and another
external for QRO.
I am thinking more and more 'try mikey you might like it' may be the way to go
on this one. It is really no big deal to mount it --
take maybe a couple hours most.
No just to pray for no rain or wind.
I was going to do the TitanDX Vertical but it is so high profile that it has to
be guide-off, the Butternut doesn't because it is
tapered in such a way that it catches very little wind.
