Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Antenna Tuner Homebrew KK4WW & N4USA. Post #856.


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this title link into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GrqGrWyb4Xc. An antenna transmatch (i.e. antenna "tuner") is one of the most valuable tools you can have in your ham shack.  By properly matching the impedance of your antenna to the design impedance of your HF transceiver, you get maximum transfer of power from your rig to the antenna. The antenna "tuner" can help keep SWR at a low level, saving your rig from damage and reducing spurious emissions.

If you feel ambitious, you can build your own antenna "tuner" similar to this outstanding project from KK4WW & N4USA.  The "tuner" in this video is well-made, sturdy, and beautiful.
