MFJ-993B IntelliTuner

With the prospect of eventually losing my vision due to Retinopathy, I am retiring my manual antenna tuner and replacing it with the MFJ-993B automatic antenna tuner. It tunes really well and really fast. Quite a bit faster that my former LDG tuners. It beeps to let me know the resulting SWR so I really don’t need to see the tuner in order to use it. I purchased the optional cable to connect it to my Icom IC-718. I like the dual antenna switch. I miss the dummy load that my manual tuner has. So far I like the tuner very well. It works like it should, as have most of my new MFJ stuff. If you’re looking for a good automatic antenna tuner, I recommend this one.
