Brett, correct me if I'm wrong. 

Originally it was 2 (two) runs of RG-214, as a balanced feed to get outside 
to the open-wire line from the Johnson Flashbox. Squirrelly tuning, so... 

He changed it to a single, fairly short piece of RG-214 between an unblanced 
tuner output and the open-wire feeders outside the shack, with the center 
conductor feeding one side of the open-wire line, and the shield the other, 
G5RV-like. He is having much better results tuning this lash-up. 

OK, so did I reduce, or add to, the confusion? :>)
