Thank you, you were very helpful. It also explains why I could tune my dipole on 180 meters when the tuner was next to the transceiver, but not when located close to the feed point.

I am operating a 746Pro at 100 watts through approximately 80 feet of coax into an Icom AH-4 tuner, feeding a Windom HSQ antenna at 45 feet. While this appears to work just fine, I have wondered if it is any more effective than using a tuner placed indoors and next to the transceiver. The reason I am curious is that the cost of an outdoor tuner able to handle more power, should I wish to add an amplifier, is substantially greater than a suitable indoor one. Is the cost warranted due to some improvement in performance?
