This is a simple video primer on using an antenna tuner to reduce your Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) and find the ideal tuning match between your transmitter and the antenna to maximize your output power to the antenna. This basic principle applies to other antenna tuners of other design and configurations. Always read your radio Operation Manual AND your Antenna Tuner manual for proper procedure for your set-up BEFORE you apply the power! Initial tuning into a Dummy Load should be made before a quick final tune-up on the actual frequency you are planning to communicate on.
