    This was a good refresher on the subject of antenna tuners. There is always something more to learn.

    “Sort” of related to antenna tuners but….can I take an 80 meter dipole and physically slice it down to the size of a 40 meter dipole? Then use the new antenna tuner I bought to cover those frequencies where it is not resonant?

    Or,,,,,can I simply fold over the excess wire in the shortening process w/o cutting it?
