One way to do it is to use the balun at the input to the tuner. But then you
gotta 'float' the tuner. Or use one designed to work that way...there's one
in the Handbook designed by Zak Lau.

OR...just put up your antenna and use it. Don't sweat the details. If it
works, that's what counts. I think Jess posted something similar the other day.

You'd be surprised what you can get to work if you don't know it's impossible.
