The LDG Z-817 is an automatic tuner intended for
use with the Yaesu FT-817(D) QRP transceiver. It interfaces with the
transceiver through its CAT port, providing full control of the tuning cycle. An
included CAT/Power cable interfaces with your FT-817(D. This makes it an
integrated tuner powered by the interface; no extra power cables are needed.
Just press the tune button on the tuner and the mode is set to carrier, the RF
power is reduced, a tune cycle runs and the radio is returned to the original
settings. A CAT pass through port is provided for computer control.
Like all LDG tuners the Z-817 operates
automatically, beginning a tuning cycle whenever the SWR exceeds a preset
limit. It 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.
All LDG tuners come with a two year fully transferable
warranty, and LDG’s legendary customer service. Contact your LDG dealer to
