Antenna "tuners" are valuable additions to your Amateur/Ham Radio equipment, especially if you can have only one multiband antenna to cover several ham radio bands. There are many choices available, from commercial automatic "tuners" to manually adjusted "tuners"-- both commercially made and built by yourself.
In this well-paced video from Dave Casler (KE0OG) we learn how to adjust manual antenna "tuners", whcih are less expensive that automatic ones, and are perfectly alright for your Amateur/Ham Radio station. Dave shows us how to "tune" a manual antenna both with an external SWR meter and with the SWR meter built into your HF transceiver. A good, solid tutorial that belongs in your reference collection.
