The LDG YT-1200 is an automatic tuner intended for use with popular Yaesu transceivers including
the FT-450, FT-450D, FT-950, FT-991, FT-991A, FTDX-1200 and FTDX-3000. The IC-450 interface
cable is included.
The YT-1200 communicates with the radio via its
CAT port at any baud rate to control the tuning cycle. The radio’s Tuner port powers the tuner, so it requires no external
power supply. The YT-1200 handles up to 125 watts SSB or CW, 100 watts on 6
meters or 30 watts on a continuous mode like FM, PSK, RTTY.
The YT-1200 integrates with your transceiver for seamless operation. Since the YT-1200 is
matched to your specific rig, just press the Tune button on the tuner, and
the rig and tuner do the rest: reduces power to appropriate level, transmits a carrier,
automatically matches the antenna to the rig, then restores the original power
and mode. The YT-1200 provides an additional CAT pass through port for computer
control of the radio.
Like all LDG tuners the YT-1200 operates automatically,
beginning a tuning cycle whenever the user presses the tune button on the tuner. 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
