On 31-jul I was in the field, a CG3000 tuner and a wire round around the mast up to the tip. The ground connector of the CG3000 goes to three 10 meter radials. Benefit of this set-up is that you are QRV on all bands from 160 to 10m. The CG3000 can handle up to 200W, the FT-857D produces no more than 100W. Use 10W AM to activate the tuner.
