What ladder line to coax junction? The ladder line should be run all the way to the tuner.
He didn't say what frequency the MFJ Zepp is for but 1/4WL of ladder-line may not be enough to reach the shack. In addition, the MFJ end-fed Zepp is like a J-Pole. The 1/4WL ladder-line is shorted at the bottom and is tapped at the 50 ohm point above the short. Coax is expected to be connected at that 50 ohm tap point and I recommend a 1:1 choke on that coax.
