MFJ-998 Autotuner New $699 – For Sale $300
Full 1500 watts SSB/CWDigital & Analog SWR/WattMeter . . .
All features of MFJ IntelliTuners– Ultra-fast, Safe Automatic Tuning . . . Wide Tuning Range (12-1600 Ohms from 1.8 to 30 MHz ) . . . Radio Interfaces . . . Built-in Antenna Switch for two coax/long wire . . . Automatic Bypass protects your amplifier . . . Field Upgradeable Software . . . Very Compact!
The MFJ-998 Full Legal Limit 1500 Watt Intellituner takes you to the final level in automatic antenna tuners. With a capability of 1500 watts SSB and CW, coupled with automatic tuning, your high-power station can now operate essentially hands-free even when frequency and band changes are made.
Fast Automatic Tuning
The MFJ-998 instantly matches impedances from 12-1600 ohms using MFJ`s exclusive IntelliTune, AdaptiveSearch and InstantRecall algorithms with over 20,000 VirtualAntenna Memories. When you key your transmitter, MFJ`s InstantRecall checks to see if that frequency has been used before. If so, tuning is instantaneous. If not, MFJ`s IntelliTune algorithm (based on MFJ`s efficient SWR Analyzer technology) measures the impedance, snaps the necessary components in place, and then fine-tunes the SWR. If the antenna impedance is outside the tuner`s measurement range, MFJ`s Adaptive Search algorithm measures the frequency and determines only relevant component values — which are then searched for fast tuning.
Safe Automatic Tuning and Amplifier Protection
LDG AT600ProII Antenna Tuner NEW $309 – For Sale $225
The LDG AT-600ProII is a general purpose automatic tuner intended for use with midsize amplifiers with up to 600 watts output on SSB or CW.
Like all LDG tuners the AT-600ProII operates automatically, beginning a tuning cycle whenever the SWR exceeds a preset limit. To protect its circuitry it will not tune at power levels above 150 watts; you simply bypass your amplifier (or place it in Standby) to complete a tuning cycle using only the exciter. The AT-600ProII also features LDG’s advanced memory tuning, providing 2,000 memory locations; when tuning near a previously used frequency it will recall the settings for nearly instant tuning. It learns your favorite frequencies and bands as you use it. You can also start a tuning cycle manually whenever necessary.
The AT-600ProII has a large, easy to read bar-graph wattmeter that show forward and reverse power with two selectable ranges (60 and 600 watts), as well as an SWR meter. The optional M-600 4.5″ analog meter shows forward power (60 and 600 watt scales), reverse power, or SWR in peak or average mode. The AT-600ProII will interface with many popular transceivers so you can start a tuning cycle with the radio’s TUNE button. Dedicated control buttons on the tuner allow you to fine-tune capacitance and inductance on those rare occasions when the AT-600ProII can’t find a perfect match by itself.
The AT-600ProII features two output connectors so you can easily switch between two antennas. There are 2,000 memory locations for each antenna, allowing nearly instant returning on frequencies you’ve used before.
The AT-600ProII will tune from 1.8 to 54.0 MHz continuously, and will match Yagis, dipoles, inverted-Vs, slopers, or virtually any coax-fed antenna from 6 to 1000 ohms impedance (16 – 150 ohms on 6 meters). Tuning time is usually under 10 seconds; memory tuning time is under 0.2 seconds. Longwires or antennas fed with ladder line require an external balun, not included.
