The MFJ-929 IntelliTuner-CompactTM lets you automatically tune any coax fed or random wire antenna 1.8-30 MHz at full 200 Watts SSB/CW. It can match 6-1600 Ohms (SWR up to 32:1) - - that's a 50% wider matching range at a higher power level than lesser competing products. You get a digital SWR/Wattmeter with backlit LCD, antenna switch for 2 antennas, built-in radio interface and built-in internal BiasTee for remote tuner operation. MFJ's exclusive IntelliTuneTM, Adaptive SearchTM and InstantRecallTM algorithms give you ultra-fast automatic tuning with over 20,000 VirtualAntennaTM Memories. Don't be fooled by competing products claiming fast search times -- if you have a quarter of the matching solutions, of course, it takes less time to finish but it's not faster. MFJ's faster speed comes from advanced technology and software algorithms not from fewer matching solutions. MFJ's IntelliTuner-CompactTM actually measures complex impedance -- R and X -of your antenna, computes the L-network values needed and snaps in those components to give you an instant match. If the load is out of measurement range, AdaptiveSearchTM determines the smaller subset from all solutions that can match a safe load -- and then searches only that subset -others search through far more solutions.

NMFJ-1924 $ 11995 Ship Code A Tuning your mobile screwdriver antenna couldn’t be easier or more reliable! The MFJ-1924 lets you save 10 of your favorite screwdriver antenna positions in memory -- that’s more than enough for all HF bands. Then, with a push of a button, you can quickly return to any saved position. Up/Down buttons let you manually move the antenna to any desired position. A 4-digit turns counter gives you precise antenna position -- you can see its super bright LEDs even in direct sunlight! Returning to a position from memory is extremely accurate for three reasons . . . A. The antenna always moves to its desired position from the bottom, insuring that the motor is always loaded the same -moving the antenna up is harder than moving it down. It’s harder to walk up a hill than down a hill. B. MFJ’s exclusive AutoParkTM feature automatically bottoms your antenna for parking in your garage and resets and calibrates your counter each time to eliminate antenna slippage and turns count errors. C. The momentum of the moving antenna causes it to overshoot its stop point. MFJ’s exclusive Dead-OnSTOPTM feature automatically reverses the motor briefly just before it stops to eliminate overshoot and come to a precise stop. MFJ’s exclusive StallProtectorTM feature prevents your expensive motor from burning out.

As we get older, high frequency hearing loss reduces our ability to understand speech. Here’s why . . . Research shows that nearly half the speech intelligibility is contained in 1000 to 4000 Hz range, but contains a miniscule 4% of total speech energy. On the other hand, the low frequencies, 125 to 500 Hz have most of the speech energy (55%) but contribute very little to intelligibility -- only 4%. To dramatically improve your ability to understand speech, you must: First, drastically increase the speech energy above 500 Hz, where 83% of the speech intelligibility is concen-trated. Second, drastically reduce speech energy below 500 Hz where only 4% of speech intelligibility lies. The MFJ616 splits the audio speech band into four overlapping octave ranges centered at 300, 600, 1200 and 2400 Hz. You can boost or cut each by nearly 20 dB. A balance control and separate 21/2 Watt amplifiers let you equalize perceived loudness to each ear so both ears help. By boosting high and cutting low frequencies and adjusting the balanced control, speech that you can barely under-stand become highly understandable! Even if you don’t have high frequency hearing loss, you’ll dramatically improve your ability to understand speech. QST for April, 2001 said “I expected a subtle effect at best, but I was astonished . . . The result was remarkably clean, understandable speech without hissing, ringing or other strange effects . . . made a dramatic improvement . . .” Immune to RFI.

High Dynamic Range Passive Preselector Can’t Overload MFJ-1046 95 $ 99 Ship Code A MFJ’s new Passive Preselector has extremely high dynamic range! It improves the performance of nearly any HF or shortwave receiver/transceiver. It vastly improves the most expensive receivers. Especially helpful to those with broadband front-ends that are prone to overload. Protects your sensitive receiver input from damage (including switching diodes and attenuator resistors) caused by very strong signals from multi-transmitter, multi-band operation -- contests, field-day, nearby hams, CBers, TV/FM/AM stations. It eliminates phantom signals by suppressing strong out-of-band signals that cause intermod, blocking and cross modulation. Completely eliminates second order intermod problems. MFJ’s unique Hi-Q series tunable circuit gives you superb performance. The tunable series tuned circuit works into a very low impedance formed by broadband toroid transformers. Has narrow bandwidth, excellent stopband attenuation, very low loss, constant bandwidth and gain over each band. Excellent attenuation in adjacent bands.

MFJ's DX Beacon Monitor lets you see which beacon you're hearing on your transceiver -- an LED lights on its world map to show you the beacon location and where to point your antenna. It's fascinating to hear and watch each beacon location light up as they become active across the world. Great for DXers, contesters, ragchewers and SWLers. The International Beacon Network provides a reliable source of signals for determining HF propagation 24 hours a day. It consists of 18 beacons around the world. Each beacon transmits on 14.1, 18.11, 21.150, 24.93 and 28.2 MHz. The transmit sequence moves westward from New York across North America, Asia, Pacific to Africa, Europe, South America. On each frequency, each beacon trans- 99 mits for ten-seconds -- its call sign at 22 wpm CW and a one-second dash at 100 watts and three one-second dashes at 10, 1, and 0.1 watts. When each beacon completes a transmission it goes silent on that band and switches to the next higher band. For more information see Oct/Nov, 1994, Sept, 1997 QST and Jan 1999, Sept/Dec 2001, Jan 2002 Practical Wireless of U.K. The more beacons you hear, the more open the band is to different parts of the world. The more dashes you hear per beacon, the better the quality of propagation and the more robust the band is. If you hear the 100 milliwatt dashes from many beacons you know the band is wide open! In just three minutes you'll know how band conditions are worldwide. You don't have to copy CW at 22 wpm to identify a beacon. As you hear a beacon, an LED instantly lights on a world map to show you its location. You can positively identify each beacon -- even if the signal is weak, fluttery or distorted. The MFJ DX Beacon Monitor has a built-in WWVB atomic clock receiver to provide ultra precise synchronization with the GPS-synchronized beacons. You also may manually sync the Monitor (the Monitor is not a receiver). MFJ-890 is a self-contained standalone unit. 63/4Wx51/4Hx3D”. Use 12 VDC or 110 VAC w/optional MFJ-1312D, $14.95.

It far outperforms other HF compact antennas. MFJ's new Manually Tuned Screwdriver Antennas let you operate all bands 80-6 Meters continuously including all WARC bands and the new 60 Meter bands (depends on model). It far outperforms other HF compact antennas. An extra long 10 foot (19” collapsed) telescoping whip lets you really get out and work rare DX! A 4½ foot (23” collapsed) telescoping stainless steel whip is included for mobile and limited space operation. It has a highly efficient loading inductor. For highest Q, the coil is wound with heavy gauge wire with wide spaced turns on a core that is mostly air. A tuning sleeve electrically removes turns to eliminate detrimental self-resonance effects that "wander leads" cause. The tuning sleeve is on the low impedance side of the coil to minimize power robbing stray capacitance and detuning hand capacitance effects. Tuning is smooth, easy and sure -- the frequency stays put after you tune it. No tedious back & forth trial & error tuning procedure. It's extremely rugged -- the whole coil assembly is one unit and does not move. A separate movable sleeve adjusts frequency. A nylon-tipped thumbscrew locks sleeve. Wing nut lets you connect a matching capacitor or inductor for 1:1 SWR. Standard 3/8x24 mounting hardware is used for loading coil and both whips. Use any 3/8x24 mount. Works great in/outdoors.

Low Radiation Angle . . . Very wide bandwidth . . . Highest performance no ground vertical ever . . . thing beyond it. In phase antenna current flows in all parallel radiators. This forms a very large equivalent radiator and gives you incredible bandwidths. Radiator stubs provide automatic bandswitching -- absolutely no loss due to loading coils or traps. Operate 10 bands -- 75/80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, 6 and 2 Meters with this MFJ-1798 vertical antenna and get full size performance with no ground or radials! Full size performance gives high efficiency for more power radiated. Results? Stronger signals and more Q-5 QSOs. Full size performance also gives you exceptionally wide bandwidths so you can use more of your hard earned frequencies. Full size performance is achieved using separate full size radiators for 2-20 Meters and highly efficient end loading for 30, 40, 75/80 Meters. End Loading On 30, 40, 75/80 Meters, end loading -- the most efficient form of loading -- gives you highly efficient performance, excellent bandwidth, low angle radiation and automatic bandswitching. MFJ’s unique Frequency Adaptive LNetworkTM provides automatic impedance matching for lowest SWR on these low bands. Tuning to your favorite part of these bands is simple and is done at the bottom of the antenna. Handles full 1500 watts PEP Get very low radiation angle for exciting DX, automatic bandswitching, omni-directional coverage, low SWR. Handles 1500 Watts PEP SSB. MFJ’s unique Elevated Top FeedTM elevates the feedpoint all the way to the top of the antenna. It puts the maximum radiation point high up in the clear where it does the most good -- your signal gets out even if you’re ground mounted. It’s easy to tune because adjusting one band has minimum effect on the resonant frequencies of other bands. Self-supporting and just 20 feet tall, the MFJ1798 mounts easily from ground level to tower top -- small lots, backyards, apartments, condos, roofs, tower mounts. No Ground or Radials Needed You don’t need a ground or radials because an effective counterpoise that’s 12 feet across gives you excellent ground isolation. You can mount it from ground level to roof top and get awesome performance. The feedline is decoupled and isolated from the antenna with MFJ’s exclusive AirCoreTM high power current balun. It’s wound with TeflonR coax and can’t saturate, no matter how high your power. Built to Last Separate Full Size Radiators Separate full size quarter wave radiators are used on 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 2 Meters. On 6 Meters, the 17 Meter radiator becomes a 3/4 wave radiator. The active radiator works as a stub to decouple every- $ MFJ-1798 95 289 Ship Code F Incredibly strong solid fiberglass rod and large diameter 6063 T-6 aircraft strength aluminum tubing is in the main structure.

For 4020-15, 10, 6, 2 Meters. Automatic bandswitching, low radiation angle, omni-directional, handles 1500 watts PEP. Goes together in an afternoon. In November 1994 QST magazine, Top of the DXCC Honor Roll member and Top 10 contester James D. Cain, K1TN, wrote “This antenna turned out to be a good performer on all bands...a $200 ground-independent vertical that will get you on segments of four HF bands when there’s room for nothing else except a small transmitting loop antenna.” 56 www.mfjenterprises.com Verticals for 80/40/20 Meters 80/40 Meter Vertical MFJ-1792 MFJ95 $ 1792 is a 169 high-perShip Code F formance 80/40 Meter vertical.

When properly installed on your vehicle this antenna provides coverage from 80 through 10 Meters with a 6 foot whip. Remove the whip for 40 through 6 Meters. What makes our antennas stand above all the rest is that our CNC machined components are from aircraft aluminum or stainless steel and blueprinted, meaning you can take antennas apart and mix them up, then reassemble and they all work the same. Our fiberglass coil form is approximately 2 inches in diameter. Other antenna builders know fiberglass is better but they choose not to use it because of the expense and difficulty in machining. We use 14 gauge wire for high power capability, 74 wound at eight turns an inch for maximum efficiency. We machine groove our coils so they will not loosen up or jam -- they won't wear out, for years of trouble free service! New Lexan cover is super durable and protects your Ameritron screwdriver for years of trouble-free service. The decoupler we use is CNC machined for tight tolerances with custom fingerstock designed to contact 3 turns of coil all the time with over 25 pounds of combined contact pressure.

Ameritron’s AL-1500 Amplifier with Eimac(R) 3CX1500A7 Feel the need for maximum legal HF output power? AMERITRON’s Suggested AL-1500 will give it to you. Retail Using the Herculean 3CX1500A/ 8877 ceramic tube with its high power gain, the AL-1500 needs only 65 watts of drive from your exciter to deliver the goods-- transceivers and other exciters just loaf at 1500 watts out. Cool, efficient operation is provided by a forced-air system with tube chimney, using a commercial grade die-cast ball bearing blower for maximum tube life. The tube is further protected by time delay starting and automatic over-current shutoff to remove drive power if the amplifier is mis-tuned. You get full legal power output from a whisper quiet desktop linear. Measures 1 18 /2D x17Wx10H inches, and covers all bands, 160-15 Meters, including WARC and MARS (80% of full output set to nearest amateur band). 10/12 Meters modifiable. You get 1500 watts output (1/2 hour continuous carrier) and 2500 watts (30 second continuous carrier and 2500 watts$ AL-1500 3045 plus 30 minute PEP two-tone test). You get all this power, plus, 65% efficiency, pi-network tuned input, Pi/PiL output, inrush current protection, multi-voltage transformer, QSK compatability, and a one-year warranty.

An inside look at the AMERITRON AL-1500 The AL-1500 is built on a rugged steel chassis with a separate RF compartment fully shielded to keep RF from leaking out, keeping RFI and TVI to a minimum. Superb RF design and layout, Hi-Q tank circuit and commercially rated RF power components give you 65% plate efficiency over the entire operating range. Power goes into the antenna instead of into heat. 50-ohm broadband Pi-Network tuned input with slug-tuned coils is used. Even fussy solid state transmitters deliver full power! A carefully designed Pi/Pi-L output network using the optimum Q for each band Ameritron’s 3CX1200A7 Amplifier with vernier ball drives gives smooth tuning, wide matching range, full band coverage, and peak performance at all power levels. The AL-1500’s grid overload circuit protects the tube from excessive grid current; if 175 mA of peak gric current is reached, the “OPR” LED will no longer light and the amplifier will go into a bypass condition until reset by the operator. Transformer provides many options Since excessive line voltage stresses components (low line voltage causes a “soft tube” effect, for example), Ameritron’s exclusive Multi-Voltage Power TransformerTM lets you optimize for different line voltages. Select from 4 different primary voltage ranges, from 205-219 VAC to 252 to 265 VAC. The amplifier comes wired from the factory for 240 VAC. The AL-1500 has two illuminated panel meters. Grid Current meter provides continuous reading of the critical grid current and indicates proper, safe amplifier operation. The other meter can be selected to read Plate Voltage, Plate Current, Peak RF Watts, or ALC. A SSB/CW selector switch chooses bias voltage for best linearity on SSB or lowest dissipation on CW. The Operate/Standby switch, in Standby, maintains the tube’s filament and plate voltages while allowing “barefoot” operation. Includes 12 volt DC auxiliary jack and an “XMT” LED to provide indication of proper amplifier keying by the exciter. Power required: 240 VAC, 15 amps.

Many amps using two 3-500s use such small power supplies they don’t deliver much more power output than the AL-80B. The AL-80B is built on a rugged steel chassis with a separate fully-shielded RF compartment to minimize RFI and TVI. A whisper quiet internal fan draws in cool air over power supply components and pressurizes the classic 3-500 tube compartment to remove heat for longest life. Tuned input lets your rig deliver full output 50 Ohm broadband Pi-Network tuned input is used. Even fussy solid state transmitters will deliver full power! A carefully designed Pi/Pi-L output network using the optimum Q for each band gives exceptionally smooth tuning, extremely wide matching range, full band coverage, and peak performance at all power levels. Step-Start Inrush ProtectionTM stops damaging inrush current with a start up sequence that’s easy on your tube and power supply components. Our exclusive Multi-Voltage Power TransformerTM lets you optimize for 14 different primary line voltages.

You’ll log some of those stations first. All band, all mode Coverage AL-811 covers all HF bands. No compromise on WARC and most MARS bands -- you get a 100% rated output. Operate AL-811 on all modes. Get 600 Watts output PEP SSB and 500 Watts output CW. You even get 300 Watts on continuous carrier modes like RTTY, SSTV, and FM. The low cost 811A tubes resists failure because . . . First, they’re constructed with widely spaced elements that minimize the chance of elements touching and causing a short -- even if the plate gets hot enough to melt. 649 $ AL-811 Second, they use a Suggested Retail directly heated thoriated tungsten filament cathode that prevents the electron emitting layer from instantly stripping off -- even if mistuning tors) produces 1500 Volts under full load and 1700 Volts no load. That’s excellent high voltage regulation! Rectifier diodes are rated for a massive surge current of 200 amps-- won’t blow even if you accidentally short the high voltage supply. Wire wound, 7 Watt, 50 K Ohm equalizing resistors safely protect each filter capacitor -- not 2 Watt, 100 K Ohm carbon composition resistors that can open and cause filter capacitors to explode or fail. Ameritron’s AL-811 power supply is built tough so you get peak performance year after year. Tuned input provides excellent load for any rig A Pi-Network tuned input provides a 50 Ohm load for your rig. Even fussy solid state 800 Watts . . . $799! Ameritron gives you four 811A tubes, and 800 Watts for the same price as their 3 tube 600W unit . . . Why settle for less power and pay more? requires special 811A tubes to retard sagging and shorting. Quiet, powerful computer grade blower draws in plenty of cool air. it pressurizes the cabinet and efficiently Only Ameritron’s cools your 811A tubes. AL-811H gives you Our air flow is so quiet, four fully neutralized 811A you’ll hardly know it’s there -- unlike transmitting tubes. You get absolute noisy, oversized blowers. stability and superb performance on Efficient, full size heavy duty higher bands that can’t be matched by tank coils, computer grade capacitors, un-neutralized tubes. heavy duty silicon power transformer, Ameritron mounts the 811A slug tuned input coils, operate/standtubes vertically -- not horizontally -by switch, transmit LED, ALC, dual to prevent hot tube elements from sagging and shorting out. Potentially meters, QSK compatibility with damaging horizontal tube mounting Ameritron’s QSK-5 plus more! causes a sudden, severe current overload. The Ameritron AL-811 is excellent for the newcomer because it’s tough enough to withstand momentary mistuning. And the tubes are so inexpensive that you can replace one for mere pocket change. Extra heavy duty power supply gives you peak performance year after year The heart of the AL-811 power supply is its heavy duty power transformer with a high silicon steel core weighing a hefty 17 pounds. A full wave bridge using 67.5 mfd of total capacitance (four 270 ufd, 450 volt capaci- rigs can deliver their full drive to the AL-811. Low loss slug tuned coils -tunable from the rear panel -let you optimize performance. High quality low drift silver mica capacitors maintain proper tuning. Output tank: Optimum Q on each band The low loss pi-network output tank has been carefully designed for optimum Q on each band and built with top quality RF components. The result is peak performance over each band, wide impedance matching range and exceptionally smooth tuning with efficiencies close to 70%. AMERITRON...the world’s high power leader! Even a 3:1 SWR load won’t damage tubes/tank components. A ball bearing vernier reduction drive makes plate tuning safe, precise and easy. A quiet blower pressurizes the cabinet with a large volume of air flow. It keeps the 811A tube temperature well below the tube manufacturer’s rating -even with a key down carrier at 400 Watts output -- without the overwhelming noise of oversized fans. Two illuminated meters Two illuminated meters give you a clear picture of your AL-811 operating conditions so you can tell right away if something is wrong. The Grid Current meter continuously checks for improper loading. The other meter switches be-tween high voltage and plate current to warn of abnormal conditions. Exclusive Adapt-A-VoltTM power transformer Too high of line voltage stresses components and causes them to wear out and fail. Too low line voltage causes a “soft tube” effect -- low output and signal distortion. Ameritron’s exclusive Adapt-A-VoltTM power transformer has a special buck-boost winding that lets you compensate for stressful high line voltage and performance robbing low line voltage. Your components last longer and gives you peak performance -- regardless of your line voltage. Plus much, much more . . . An Operate/Standby switch lets you run barefoot, but you can in-stantly switch to full power if needed. A transmit LED tells you when your rig is keying your AL-811. A 12 VDC keying relay makes it compatible with all solid state and tube rigs. Back-pulse cancelling diode protects the rig keying circuit. Shielded RF compartment. One year limited warranty. Compact 16Dx133/4Wx8 H”. 30 lbs. UPS shippable, has transformer installed and wired for 120 VAC. Draws 8 amps at 120 VAC. Export model is AL811X wired for 240 VAC.

It learns while you’re having fun As you’re ragchewing, contesting or DXing, your MFJ-993B is learning! When you transmit, the MFJ-993B automatically tunes for minimum SWR and remembers your frequency and tuner settings. The next time you operate on that frequency and antenna, these tuner settings are instantly restored and you’re ready to operate in milliseconds! MFJ new VirtualAntennaTM Memory system gives you 4 antenna memory banks for each of 2 antenna connectors. Select up to 4 antennas on each antenna connector. Each antenna has 2500 memories, 20,000 total. Intelligent ultra fast tuning MFJs InstantRecallTM first checks its 600 Watt MFJ Automatic Tuner MFJ-994B 95 359 Ship Code B $ 25995 $ MFJ-993B Ship Code B memory to see if you have operated this frequency before. If so, tuning is instantaneous and you re ready to operate. If not, MFJs IntelliTunerTM algorithm - - based on MFJ s famous SWR Analyzer technology - - kicks in. It measures the complex impedance of your antenna. Next, it calculates the components it needs and instantly snaps them in. Then, it fine tunes to minimize SWR -- you’re ready to operate. It’s all done in a fraction of a second. When the impedance is within its measurement range, the MFJ-993B is the fastest automatic antenna tuner in the world. If it can’t accurately determine impedance, MFJ’s AdaptiveSearchTM algorithm goes into action. Frequency is measured and relevant components values are determined. Only those values are searched for ultra-fast tuning. For even faster searches, you can set the target SWR to 2 (settable 1.0-2.0). You can manually tune when you can’t transmit (for listening out of ham bands). Cross Needle and Digital SWR/Watt Meters Lighted Cross-Needle and digital meters lets you accurately read SWR, forward and reflected power at a glance.
