AT-11 Autotuner


Affordable Desktop Autotuner

This automatic antenna tuner, the AT-11, takes advantage of a modern microprocessor and merges it with an old network design that has been around for many years. The 68HC11microprocessor improves the L network implementation by automatically analyzing the SWR and adjusting discrete components at speeds much faster than can be accomplished manually.

The tuner fits onto a 6 x 8 inch PC board and can handle 150 watts continuous, matching most unbalanced antennas from 80 to 10 meters and some on 160. The tuner makes a great addition to the ham shack with any 5 to 150 watt HF transceiver (the AT-11 does not require band or frequency data from the radio). An optional external Balun allows the AT-11 to tune long wire, random length, and most other antenna systems.

The enclosures are made by Ten-Tec Inc (same ones that make radios). The enclosure is all aluminum is texture painted with a black top and beige front and back panels. The panels are laid out similarly to the prototypes shown in the QST article and have the silk screened labels painted on.
