This is post 2389 in a continuing series of simple ham radio antennas.

Here's an interesting antenna "coupler" ("tuner") idea from Australian radio amateur Peter Parker (VK3YE).  

According to Peter, this basic L-"tuner" doesn't require a variable capacitor.

Here are some of Peter's comments:

Variable capacitors can sometimes be hard to find. Especially during this time of lockdown with all hamfests cancelled. Described is a 1.8 to 18 MHz L-match antenna coupler that uses double sided fibreglass printed circuit board as a substitute. PS: Like these videos? Wish to support this channel?
