Hi all iv'e seen a lot of info regarding using a external feed line antenna tuner ie one mounted outside at the coax feed point to the antenna, most say they are far better, if you put the tuner at the antenna feed point, you can run coax from the transmitter to the tuner confident that the remote tuner will adjust your antenna feed point impedance so that the coax between the transmitter and the tuner sees a 1:1 match, thus, minimizing the loss.

So why do most have there atu at the transceiver end if its not as efficient
