Re: Antenna Tuner or Tune an Antenna with an Analyzer?
Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
I would say it depends. If it’s a single band antenna I say tune the antenna for best match across the band or at the frequency of concern, and if the SWR is still too high at the point of resonance, build a transformer into the feedline to get close to 1:1.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
If you want to use the same antenna on multiple bands, a tuner is darn useful. My two HF radios both have very capable built in auto tuners, and I’ve used my OCFD on bands where it would otherwise be unusable.
