My tuner cannot tune 10, but 20 and 40 will tune to 1.5:1 or less.  15 tunes 1:1 in a heartbeat.

Are you tuning on the frequency on which you call CQ?
 



I have been tuning when the bands are dead...but yes, I did that as the instructions for my tuner are a bit confusing. I cut my 20 m elements a few incehs long, maybe I need to trim them.

On 40m now.

Yep, I got nothing on this end. This S9 noise is killing everything. Lower in the band isn't bad but its full of QSO goers. Guess I will answer some of them for a while. Thanks anyways.
