    I just purchased a LD 5, and when I use it with a hamstick, my SWR is 1-1.5, on all bands. When I hook it up to my end fed, the SWR shoots up to over 3. Is there a automatic antenna tuner I can use? I do have a LDG Z100. Thanks. Joe

    I have the same question on “What is a reasonable recommendation for a QRP tuner for the LD5?” I have the end fed trail friendly antenna 10/20/40 version and working any other band than 20 seems difficult. SWR seems to range up to 2+ or more and can reduce transmit power down to 2-3 watts compared to 5-8 on 20. Looking to see what tuner can manage the SWR.

    Any tuner recommendations?

    Thanks.

    You shouldn’t need a tuner if you set the antenna up according to the instructions
