Thanks to all who replied to my cries for help.

A 2.5mH rf choke on each coax connector to ground inside my tuner solved the
static problem. A VERY slight difference in adjusting the tuner is noticed,
but it is no problem.

I ran the ladder line inside a piece of 2" PVC pipe throught the block wall.
It is foamed in place. Works great!

This group has good answers for almost any possible problem. I'm sure that
the answers come from the 'been there, done that' school of experience.

Again thanks for the help.
