Yeah, I used that write-up to tune my own and I could pull in the truckers from the highway 6+ miles away clear as could be.

You'll find that once you follow the instructions through a couple times (since you may have to tweak things and repeat the steps a few times) that it's VERY simple. Just make sure you follow the general rules...tweak it with your antenna cap on if you're gonna use it (soap it up so it slides on and off easily), don't do it inside a garage/barn (I used a wide open field when I did mine but anywhere where your signal won't be reflecting all over the place will work), etc.
