Why? Because MFJ uses super heavy duty components to make the world’s finest legal limit antenna tuner MFJ-989C 95 359 Ship Code E $ • AirCoreTM Roller Inductor • Super Heavy Duty Components • Cross-Needle SWR/Wattmeter • Antenna Selector • TrueCurrentTM Balun • Built-in Dummy Load • Made in THE U.S.A. MFJ uses super heavy duty components -- roller inductor, variable capacitors, antenna switch and balun -- to build the world’s most popular high power antenna tuner. The rugged world famous MFJ-989C handles 3 KW PEP SSB amplifier input power (1500 Watts PEP SSB output power). Covers 1.8 to 30 MHz, including MARS and WARC bands. MFJ’s AirCoreTM Roller Inductor, new gear-driven turns counter and weighted spinner knob gives you exact inductance control for absolute minimum SWR. You can match dipoles, verticals, inverted vees, random wires, beams, mobile whips, shortwave -- nearly any antenna. Use coax or balanced lines. You get everything you’ve ever wanted in a high power, full featured antenna tuner -- widest matching range, lighted CrossNeedle SWR/Wattmeter, antenna switch, built-in dummy load, balun -- all in a sleek, compact cabinet. MFJ builds the world’s most popular high power antenna tuner using these super heavy duty components . . . MFJ’s exclusive heavy duty AirCoreTM Roller Inductor has an air core that can’t burn up! Get ultra high-Q, lowest loss, highest efficiency and highest power handling of any roller inductor in ham radio. MFJ’s exclusive Self-Resonance KillerTM keeps damaging self-resonances away from your operating frequency. Large, self-cleaning wiping contact 2 wire connected to highvoltage glazed ceramic feedthrough insulators. The MFJ-989C lets you safely operate high power into balanced feedlines without core saturation or voltage breakdown. Some “legal limit” tuners have inferior voltage baluns with smaller diameter toroid cores and soft plastic feedthrough insulators that can arc and melt. More reasons why the MFJ-989C is the world’s finest high power antenna tuner: Built-in Dummy Load gives excellent low-resistance connection without contact arcing or burning. Solid 1/4 inch brass shaft, self-align bearings give smooth non-binding rotation. Competing tuners use a lossy, low Q, solid plastic core with erratic electrical contacts and have potentially damaging selfresonant frequencies. This can cause excessive heating and melt the core! Gear Driven Counter A precision gear driven 3-digit turns counter lets you accurately reset your roller inductor for quick band changing. Weighted spinner knob on roller inductor gives you smoother flywheel tuning. Massive Transmitting Capacitors Look inside . . . you’ll see two superheavy duty transmitting variable capacitors that can handle 6000 volts. Extra wide (0.27 inch) stator plate spacing gives you arc-free operation. Specially shaped plates give low minimum capacitance when unmeshed. This and a hefty 250 pf maximum give you an extremely wide matching range -- even on 160 and 10 Meters. Super Antenna Switch MFJ-989C’s super heavy duty antenna switch is made of two individual ceramic wafers wired in parallel. Extra wide spaced, heavy duty contacts handle extreme voltages and currents. We’ve never burned one up! You can select two coax antennas (directly or through tuner), balanced line/ random wire, or built-in dummy load. MFJ TrueCurrentTM Balun MFJ’s super heavy duty TrueCurrentTM balun for balanced lines uses two giant 21/2 inch toroid cores. It’s wound with TeflonR www.mfjenterprises.com A full-size 300 Watt non-inductive 50 Ohm dummy load is built into MFJ-989C. You’ll find it handy for transmitter tuning, testing and repairing rigs, setting power level, adjusting mic gain and more. Lighted Cross-Needle Meter Lighted Cross-Needle SWR/Watt-meter lets you monitor SWR, forward and reflected power simultaneously. Read both peak and average power in two power ranges. Meter lamp requires 12 VDC or 110 VAC with MFJ-1312D, $14.95. Sleek and Compact The compact MFJ-989C slides right into your operating position -- you’ll hardly know it’s there. It’s just 103/4Wx41/3Hx15D inches. Do you want a bulky “legal limit” tuner that’s bigger than your amplifier? Lexan Front Panel The MFJ-989C has a new nearly indestructable multi-color Lexan front panel. Its detailed logging scales and legends will be legible for a lifetime of DXing. Super Construction MFJ-989C uses PEM nuts (not selftapping screws), wing-nut ground post (not a cheap nut), fire-retardant epoxy glass PC board (not canvas based), heavy gauge wire throughout. No Matter WhatTM Warranty Every MFJ-989C is protected by MFJ’s famous one year No Matter WhatTM limited warranty. We will repair or replace your MFJ-989C (at our option) for a full year.

Wide-spaced tuning capacitor plates let you run high power without arcing. Lighted cross-needle meter MFJ’s lighted Cross-Needle Meter shows you SWR, forward and reflected power simultaneously. It reads peak or average power on 2000 or 200 Watt ranges. Lamp has on/off switch and uses 12 VDC or 110 VAC with MFJ-1312D, $14.95. MFJ TrueCurrentBalunTM reduces feedline radiation Most tuners use a voltage balun that forces equal voltages on the two antenna halves. It minimizes unbalanced currents only if the antenna is perfectly balanced -- not the case with practical antennas. The MFJ-986 uses a true current balun to force equal currents in the two antenna halves -- even if the antenna is not perfectly balanced! The MFJ TrueCurrentBalunTM gives superior balance over voltage baluns and minimizes unbalanced current. This reduces field pattern distortion, concentrates your power for a stronger signal -- plus it reduces TVI and RF in your shack caused by feedline radiation.

A 1:1 current balun is placed on the low impedance 50 input side to convert the balanced T-Network to unbalanced operation. The balun is made of 50 ferrite beads on RG-303 Teflon™ coax to give exceptional and efficient isolation. It stays cool even at maximum power. Antenna Tuner/Artificial Ground MFJ Artificial RF Ground Excellent Balance, Excellent Design Places your rig near earth ground potential! MFJ-931 MFJ-934 95 95 $ 89 179 Ship Code B Ship Code A $ MFJ-934 is unique because it has a built-in artificial ground. A ground matching knob lets you switch in inductance to bring an attached wire to a low impedance current point to form an artificial ground. A push button lets you use the CrossNeedle Meter to monitor for maximum ground current. With an artificial ground to work against, you’ll be surprised to see how well a random wire can work. You get a 300 Watt full featured, general purpose antenna tuner that covers 1.830 MHz. It has a two range, lighted CrossNeedle Meter that lets you read SWR, forward and reflected power all in a glance and a 4:1 balun for balanced lines. Plus, you get an efficient airwound inductor, special high current/voltage 12 position inductor switch and two 1000 volt air-variable capacitors. It tunes all types of antennas and feedlines including random wire, coax and balanced lines. 105/8Wx31/2Hx8D in. Create an artificial ground with this MFJ-931! It effectively places your rig near actual earth ground potential even if your rig is on the second floor or higher with no earth ground possible! Also, it electrically places a far away RF ground at your rig. How’s your RF ground? Do you have RF “hot spots” that “bite” you when you transmit? Do you have RF feedback that causes your rig to quit working on some bands? Do you have TVI/RFI that makes your neighbors hard to live with? Do you get weak signal reports because of extreme ground losses or radiation pattern distortion? These problems could be caused by poor RF grounding, especially if your rig is on a second floor with no ground at all. Even if you have a good ground, a long connection wire can ruin its effectiveness by isolating true RF ground from your rig. !$ MFJ-97495 w e 169 Ship Code D MFJ-974, $169.95.

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.

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.

MFJ-1925/I2 $ 59 95 Ship Code A The ham world has found the perfect HF/VHF antenna for mobile/ portable operation....the Yaesu ATAS Screwdriver Antenna.... But, you can’t use the antenna unless you have the MFJ-1925/MFJ-1925 I2 antenna controller. MFJ made it possible for the popular Yaesu ATAS series antenna to be used with other radios such as the IC-706, TS-50 and others. The MFJ is installed in-line between the antenna and rig. Provides the necessary voltage to move antena up or down when controller is pressed accordingly. MFJ-1925 I2 is specially designed for the Icom IC-706. It’s a perfect match for the 706 and the Yaesu screwdriver antenna. It has a special 706 controller cable with 4-pin connector that mates with the 706 controller port. When the up/down switch is pressed on the controller, the 706 automatically transmits in low power and turns the www.mfjenterprises.com antenna for low SWR. When the lowest SWR is found, simply release the tune switch on the MFJ controller. Now you’re ready to operate. SWR is monitored by the meter on the 706. MFJ-1925 I2 is simple to install. No modification to the radio or antenna is necessary. SO-239 connectors for radio and antenna connections. MFJ-1925 I2 has connection for 13.6 VDC power and 4-pin connector for the 706 antenna port.

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. There is no tedious back and forth trial and 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 thumb-screw locks sleeve. A wing nut lets you connect a matching capacitor or inductor for 1:1 SWR. Standard 3/8x24 mounting hardware is used for both the loading coil and both whips. Use any standard 3/8x24 mount. Works great in or out doors. Handles 200Watts PEP. Add coax, connect ground/ counterpoise and you're ready to operate. Long 12/10/4.5 ft. Telescoping Whips New!

The MFJ Ground-Coupled Portable Antenna BaseTM gives you a stable way to mount your vertical antenna and provides an effective ground by just plopping down the base and standing on it to push the legs firmly into the ground. It’ll support many multiband verticals. It’s perfect for traveling or for semi-permanent summer/winter homes. You can easily set it up and take down your vertical antenna for stealth operation if you live in an antenna-restricted area. The MFJ-1904 Ground-Coupled Portable Antenna BaseTM is a 2x2 foot stainless steel square with reinforcing bends that greatly strengthens it. There is a folded and tapered six-inch stainless steel leg on each corner. Two antenna mounts let you use a variety of vertical antennas. Two handles make carrying and removing the base fast and easy. You can also attach radials for improved performance. Stainless steel construction means you’ll get trouble-free service for years. The base is anchored into the ground by stepping on each corner and forcing each leg into the ground. Each stainless steel leg is designed to keep the base from tilting. The base can support a lightweight multiband vertical antenna -- like the all band HyGain 18AVS and the bandswitching MFJ1795 -- and provide a semi-permanent installation. You can even hide the base by covering it with dirt. Built-in antenna mount with SO-239 coax connector and two U-bolts lets you mount most standard and homebrew vertical antennas.

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.

More hams use Ameritron AL-811 amplifiers than any other amplifier in the world . . . The AL-811 has earned a worldwide reputation for legendary quality, flawless performance, proven reliability and superb customer service . . . Ameritron’s AL-811 linear amplifier gives you plenty of power to bust through QRM! You get a quiet desktop linear that’s so compact it’ll slide right into your operating position -- you’ll hardly know it’s there . . . until QRM sets in. And you can conveniently plug it into your nearest 120 VAC outlet -- no special wiring needed. You get three tough 811A transmitting tubes, extra heavy duty power supply, all HF band coverage, pressurized ventilation, tuned input, dual illuminated meters, adjustable ALC and much more for an incredible $649! The First 600 Watts makes the difference The AL-811 gives you 600 Watts PEP output -- that’s nearly 2 full S-units over your barefoot rig. That could mean the difference between hearing, “You’re Q-5 armchair copy” and “Sorry, can’t copy you, too much QRM.” Now you won’t have to stand aside while the big guns steal your DX. 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 . . .

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.

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. An aural SWR meter lets you hear the tuned SWR when you can’t see or read the meters. Turn on a highly visible, instant response SWR LCD bargraph when you need it. Backlit LCD Display $ 25995 MFJ-993 An easy-to-read backlit LCD displays SWR, forward/reflected power, frequency, antenna 1/2, L/C tuner values, on/off indicators and other information. New! The MFJ-993 IntelliTunerTM lets you tune any antenna automatically balanced or unbalanced - - ultra fast. It’s a comprehensive automatic antenna tuning center complete with SWR/Wattmeter, antenna switch for two antennas and 4:1 current balun for balanced lines. MFJs exclusive IntelliTunerTM, Adaptive SearchTM and InstantRecallTM algorithms give you ultra fast automatic tuning with over 2000 non-volatile revolving memories. You get a highly efficient L-network, wide 6-1600 ohm matching at full 300 Watts SSB/150 Watts CW, 1.8-30 MHz coverage, Cross-Needle and digital meters, aural SWR meter, backlit LCD display, remote control port, radio interface, heavyShip Code B 600 Watt MFJ Automatic Tuner $ MFJ-994 95 359 Ship Code B New!

Tuning must be done at low transceiver power with the amplifier bypassed. TM MFJ ENTERPRISES, INC. 300 Industrial Park Road Starkville, MS 39759 USA TO: duty 16 amp/1000 volt relays and more. It learns while you’re having fun As you’re ragchewing, contesting or DXing, your MFJ-993 is learning! When you transmit, the MFJ-993 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! Each of two antennas can learn and remember over a thousand frequencies and tuner settings. They are safely stored in non-volatile revolving memory. Highly Intelligent ultra fast tuning MFJs InstantRecallTM first checks its 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-993 is the fastest automatic antenna tuner in the world. If it can’t accurately determine impedance, MFJ’s AdaptiveSearchTM algorithm Remote Control Port Plug in the MFJ-990RC, $39.95, remote control and put your tuner at your antenna or elsewhere and control it remotely. The MFJ-993 supports radio tuner interfaces such as the ICOM 706 series. Interface cables are available. The MFJ-993 is a compact 10Wx2¾ Hx9D inches. Use 12 –15 VDC/1 amp or 110 VAC with MFJ-1316, $19.95. Tune any Antenna You can tune any antenna — dipoles, verticals, beams, phased arrays, inverted vees, quads, random wires, mobile antennas, compact limited space antennas – practically any antenna.
