The LDG YT-100 is an automatic antenna tuner , which automatically and quickly tunes antennas in the frequency range from 1.8 to 54 MHz. It is specially engineered to integrate with Yaesu FT-100 (D), FT-857 (D) and FT-897 (D) (not for other devices.). The YT-100 connects to the CAT (Computer Automated Transceiver) port on the back of the radio (is included).
The load capacity of the YT-100 is max. 125 watts SSB / CW (digital operating modes max. 100 watts), however, automatic tuning is also possible from a watt RF power.
The YT-100 has up to 2000 memory locations and thus tunes extremely quickly at previously tuned frequencies. A normal voting process takes a maximum of 6 seconds, when using a memory this time is reduced to 0.2 seconds.
The tuner is suitable for dipoles, vertical antennas, inverted-vee, all coax-fed antennas. An optional balun can also be used with parallel-wire-fed or long-wire antennas.
The adjustable impedance range is up to 4 to 800 ohms (16 to 150 ohms at 6m).
The connection cable for the above-mentioned transceivers is included, the tuner also receives the power supply directly from the radio.
The connection is made via the CAT socket of the transceiver, this socket is also looped through to the tuner for further use, so that any additional device can be connected to the tuner.
The dimensions of the tuner are (W X H x D) 7 x 2 x 7 Inches, the weight is 1.25 lb
