  4. I wasn't using a tuner however if you're stringing it through trees or doing something unusual then SWR could change thus a tuner might be handy. The antenna used in the photo comes is from http://myantennas.com I'm not into parks or SOTA yet but I will be once I perfect set up and pull down of my portable station as it develops. I've got one of these army surplus portable tripod masts that just arrived today and a second one coming.
