I'm wondering if some "guru" out in AM land can set me straight on how
to properly tune a long wire using an "L" network or a "T" network tuner
configuration. I have two
long wires, each 285 feet long. They feed directly into my shack, where
the tuner is located.
I have a tuner that I built using a BC610 external tuner roller inductor
and two BC610 variable capacitors, allowing me to use either method to
tune my long wires.
Which is the best method to tune with? An "L" network or a "T" network?
To reduce the losses coming from the tuner, which is best to use? The
least amount of
inductance you can use to get a match, or the highest inductance to get
Which method will most likely give the widest bandwidth without re
