  Thanks LB for continuing to educate me.  By the way,  I just love your '12
ways to love your feeders' on your Web page.  I have studied that very
 I spent a few hours in the antenna handbook last nite and extracted a gem
that  I'll remember in the future.  "There is always a voltage loop at the
end of a resonant antenna". P26.2 .  In my original question,  I forgot to
think about the ends of the antenna.  In essence,  I was resonant on the 80
m band no matter what the feed length.
 Now,  on a non-resonant antenna,  does a tuner create a voltage loop at the
end of the antenna(Assuming the reactance is cancelled) ?.
