By the way, for all you tuner buffs out there, I just noticed that this
photo includes a rather remarkable tuner.  In the center of the photograph
(below the vertical Maglite flashlight) is a small one-quart paint can with
no label and some knobs, switches and UHF connectors on it.

This tuner is a gift from Paul Bittner, W0AIH, who, like me, terminates each
coax at the shack with a matching network.  Whereas I have a mix of
homebrews, antiques and modified Dentrons, Paul built all of his from
scratch and houses them in these little paint cans.  I have run the Alpha at
full output through Paul's little can there and it works great (20 Meters).

In this photo it is taking the day off.

Mark, N5OT
