If your tuner is working correctly, use it in the automatic mode. Make sure you have a 12 volt
power source connected to the tuner.
When you transmit, the tuner senses the anrenna swr and adjusts it self for lowest swr.
It is always better to have the tuner at the base of the antenna, but the tuner must be in a
water proof enclosure. If not, put the tuner in the shack...
Make sure you have some ground radials connected to the ground, (lower side) of the base of
the antenna. The more radials you have, the better it will work.
Good luck
