Need some general information on tuners n4jrp on 12/2/15
I use a similar base loaded vertical from MFJ with a single elevated radial. I have been able to tune it to less than 2:1 on all bands from 6 to 40 meters using the coil, radiator length, and counterpoise length. So I would say no, you do not NEED a tuner. That said, I use a tuner to pull a 1.7 down to 1:1 etc. Mine is installed at my base. Set it up at home and make sure you know which configurations work for you using an antenna analyzer if possible. Hope this helps.
