Here's an antenna matcher project that I'm working on.  Actually, it's not quite finished yet, but it works very well for what I've been doing!

This circuit was published in a 1965 ARRL book.

The circuit is reported to match to any type of antenna to a 50/70 ohm transmitter.

At the present time, I've been using a 115' long-wire antenna, up about 25' to transmit.

My first QSO with my homebrew transmitter, matcher and long-wire, got me a contact about 1026 miles away .. not much if you're Marconi, but I was elated!
