Hello, have a question for anyone who wants to answer.
I am looking into getting a AL-811 amp, but the problem is I don't have an antenna tuner that can take 600 watts. So I was thinking about building an L-network tuner that I could mount on the side of the house and just lean outside to adjust.
The antenna I am using (at the grandparents farm) is a 320' dipole, fed with about 40' of ladder line to a 4:1 balun, then a run of coax to the shack.
The only thing is, I am very much an appliance op. However I have a strong urge to learn how to build matching networks and tuners like this, because I enjoy experimenting with antennas very much. There is a ham in the area who has elmered me for a long time who is willing to show me build it, if I can get a schematic (he likes to help you help yourself).
If you have any plans laying around, or schematics to an L-network that can handle 600 watts that you think would work perfectly for this situation, please post them here, send me a PM, or send me an email! Your choice.
