Re: Question About The 4 States Antenna Tuner

BTW ... of interest to many... There is a simulator of the T network tuner at:
http://fermi.la.asu.edu/w9cf/tuner/tuner.html

It's a great way to practice adjusting the beast without smoking too many finals. Also has an optimized "autotune" function that can predict what your own tuner settings may need to be for a given load condition ( R +/- jX that the Nano VNA can tell you about). For example - it predicts that at 7 MHz the 50 ohm dummy load (50 + j0) should match with both caps at near maximum, and the inductor near minimum.

To run your computer does need to have JAVA installed, so it may not be everyone's cup of "tea"
