I had not considered the coax bringing water into the shack but it is possible.  As I stated the fluid leaking out of a tuner(any electronics for that matter) is a concern.  I will be putting up a new antena soon and will be very mindful to seal the coax at the antenna.  Thanks for the tip, Mike KE4ILG GySgt USMC Ret.

I'm assuming your tuner isn't designed for such high power as to require water cooling?  Grin

Did you disconnect the coax at the tuner and check?

I don't know if this will work for you, but I just set the rig (IC-7200) to the AM broadcast band in CW mode, tune off of a station to get rid of the carrier tone, and practice CW that way. I only hear one tone. Seems simple to me. ?? Smiley

Yup, I will take the tuner and the antenna to someone local  who would be willing to let me test it with their antennas. That might clear up a few things.
