W3EDP Antenna Checkout for PLP

I tried it and I like it. The W3EDP is a 85 foot long wire and a 17 foot counterpoise. The LDG 817 tuner lets me match it for 40 through 10 meters. I used LDG 1 to 1 balun directly on the tuner output for all but 15 meters and then switched to the LDG 4 to 1 to get 15 meters to tune. So this is just another possible configuration for Parking Lot Portable (PLP) ops.
