Icom 130 antenna tuner

I am just in the final stages of assembling my SSB radio system. Could some one tell me how the antenna canle connects to the antenna tuner. I am guessing I strip off the end of the cable on the antenna, put a couple small loops around the insulator on the tuner and tighten the looped cable down with the wing nut. If this would not work what would?

Re: Icom 130 antenna tuner

SeaDancer, You need to put an eye connector on the center wire only of your GTO 15 cable and connect that to the wing nut on the tuner. Be sure the crimp is tight. Chuck
