If I understand correctly, the BEST place for an antenna tuner is at the antenna feed point. If the antenna is being fed with 50 ohm coax, the feed-line losses would be minimal so long as the impedance at the feed point was also 50 ohms, wherefore any mis-match created by the antenna would be corrected by the tuner, and any reflected energy would be re-reflected immediately back into the antenna...voila, minimal losses!
