Do I need a tuner at the base or can a shack ATU or Rig Tuner work too?

Q. Do I need a tuner at the base of the Flagpole Antenna or can we tune from the shack with an ATU or Rig Tuner?

A. I'm glad you asked. Some people do tune the antenna from the shack and report happy results. Please keep in mind for the peak performance we showcase for this antenna, it is designed for a match at the base of the antenna. Typically, a tuner in the shack tunes the coax with the antenna and that's just not going to work as well. Want a real high-performance antenna, a tuner must be installed at the base (as close as possible). Power over coax to a remote tuner is our recommendation for ease of use.
