Andre' and all

I stopped into a K-Mart on the way to St Louis and found some "Junior" 
storage crates that have a little solid panel in each end.  This panel is 
just made to order for drilling a hole in for a tuning shaft for a 
variable coupler.  A variable coupler should tune the R value of the 
antenna tuner when placed in series with the tranmission line.

Thus, tune the antenna untile the reactance is zero and then tune the 
coupler 'till the impedence is 50 ohms.  Touch each up and the antenna 
should be tuned.

I'll be back next week and will try to find the time to build one to fit 
into the tuner at Hal's.
