I was recently given a homebrew QUIET TUNER II form a deceased ham.

I need any articles/references on how to use this device. I believe it allows off-the-air tuneup.

I Searched ARRL web site and Gooled it but no luck.

The worst part is that I was going to build one many years ago and now I got one but instructions.

Thanks, 73, Carl, AA4MI

When I Googled "Quiet Tuner", the first item shown was your question, the second item was a PDF of an article from QEX about the Quiet Tuner.  A quick scan of that article shows that it allows tuneup with a small amount of power (>1 watt) to the antenna.  A noise bridge is probably a better option if you really want to be able to tune up without radiating a signal.  The Palomar Tuner-Tuner was one such device and info on that is still available.  A search for "noise bridge antenna tuner" returns lots of articles on how to use a noise bridge for that purpose.

K8AC,

Many thanks for your useful information.  And its just as you said!

btw, I have a Palomar tuner-tuner; found it hidden in the back of my shack closet!

I'll have to "re-familiarize" myself with this unit and see if the previous owner built it according
to the schematic(s).

Thanks again...
