This general (/AG!) newbie has a very simple rig: a marine mobile Icom ic725, LDG 100 tuner, and 23' vertical whip. The tuner matched
4-30 mHz until I added a ceramic insulator through my steel boat, and lengthened the feed line by a couple of feet in the process. A local ham has recommended a manual tuner, which is fine with me; I'd like to know whats going on in my system rather than just being frustrated when the green light doesn't come on. Is that good advice, and would a MFJ-945-E do the job, ordo you have a better idea. Thanks. I've got a lot to learn. --Tim.

There is a download to a January 1995 QST that describes how to optimally tune a common T network transmatch.
