  This paper presents the tuning result of a tapered ridge-loaded waveguide coupler for the drift tube linac (DTL) of the compact pulsed hadron source (CPHS) at Tsinghua University. The coupler has been designed, manufactured, and mounted on the DTL cavity for the cold measurement and tuning. The iris diameter of the coupler which is related to the coupling coefficient needs to be determined in the tuning experiment, due to the difference between the designed and measured quality factors. Meanwhile, we found that the relationship between the coupling coefficient and iris diameter from the traditional analytical design method is not applicable when the iris diameter is relatively large. In this paper, the target coupling coeffi-cient is analysed, and the limit of the original analytical design is presented. The measurement method is intro-duced to improve the measurement efficiency and the tuning process of the coupling coefficient to the target value is described. After several iterations, the coupling coefficient is tuned to 1.54 which is close to the desired value of 1.56.
