MFJ-989C Legal Limit Antenna Tuner
More hams use MFJ-989s than any other legal limit antenna
tuner in the world! Why? Because MFJ uses super heavy duty
components to make the world’s finest legal limit antenna tuner
MFJ-989C

• 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.
Outstanding Customer Service
We’re here to help keep your MFJ989C performing flawlessly -- no matter

MFJ’s innovative
Differential-TTM tuner
uses a differential
capacitor that makes
tuning easier than
ever. Gives minimum
SWR at only one setting. Broadband
design ends constant
retuning.
The MFJ-986 is a
rugged roller inductor
antenna tuner that handles 3 KW PEP SSB
amplifier input power (1500 Watts PEP SSB
output power). Tunes 1.8-30 MHz continuously, including MARS and all the WARC
bands.
MFJ’s exclusive AirCoreTM Roller
Inductor gives absolute minimum SWR -something tapped inductors just can’t do.
3-digit turns counter plus a spinner knob
gives precise inductance control so you can
quickly retune your frequency.
A lighted peak and average reading crossneedle meter shows SWR, forward and
reflected power at a single glance!
You get a 6-position antenna switch that
lets you select two coax lines and/or random
wires (direct or through tuner), balanced line
and external dummy load.
The MFJ TrueCurrentBalunTM for balanced lines minimizes feedline radiation that
causes field pattern distortion, TVI and RF in
your shack. Ceramic feedthru insulators for
balanced lines withstand high voltages and
temperatures.
Differential-T TunerTM . . . .
A new twist on proven technology
Replacing two variable capacitors with a
single differential capacitor gives wide range
T-network tuning with just two controls -- a
tuning capacitor and a roller inductor.
Simple 2-knob tuning makes tuning easier

response that ends constant
re-tuning. You’ll spend
your time QSOing instead
of fooling with your tuner.
The compact
103/4x41/2x15 inch cabinet
has plenty of room to
mount the roller inductor
away from metal surfaces
for highest Q -- you get
high efficiency and more
power into your antenna.
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.

Tunes any Balanced Line
The MFJ-974H tunes any balanced lines
including 600 Ohm open wire line, 450/300
Ohm ladder lines, 300/72 Ohm twin lead - shielded or unshielded.
Superb current balance minimizes feedline radiation that can cause troublesome
TVI and RFI, painful RF bites, mysterious
RF feedback problems and radiation pattern
distortion.
The MFJ-974H gives you excellent current balance, very wide matching range(122000 Ohms) and covers 1.8 through 54
MHz continuously including all WARC
bands, 160 Meters, 6 Meters and the new
60 Meter band. Handles 300 Watts SSB
PEP and 150 Watts CW.
Tuning is fast and easy - - just three tuning controls. You can even adjust for highly efficient broadband low-Q operation or
use higher Q when you encounter extreme
loads.
A large three-inch lighted Cross-Needle
SWR/Wattmeter lets you read SWR, peak
or average forward and reflected power all
at a glance on 300 or 30 Watt ranges.
A ground post is provided to ground one
output terminal so you can also tune random wires and coax fed antennas.
Compact 7½Wx6Hx8D inches fits anywhere.
The MFJ-974H is a fully balanced wide
range T-Network using four gear driven
1000-Volt air variable capacitors and highQ air wound tapped inductor for 80-10
Meters and separate inductors for 6 and
160 Meters. The tuning components are
mounted symmetrically to insure electrical
balance.
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.

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

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.

A dual paddle key such as the MFJ-564, lets you
use the iambic mode. In this mode, you can insert a dot before a
dash finishes or insert a dash before a dot finishes. Also, squeezing both paddles generates alternating dots and dashes. This lets
you send characters such as C, K, and R with a single squeeze. It
turns an inexperienced fist into a professional.
You can use the automatic mode with a single or dual paddle.
You automatically generate dots and dashes by pressing the paddle.
You can switch into a semi-automatic “bug” mode to generate
dots automatically and dashes manually. Or you can use a

MFJ Speech Intelligibility Enhancer
...makes barely understandable speech highly understandable!
$
MFJ-616
95
169
Ship Code B
“What did you say?”
Can you hear but . . . just can’t always
understand what people are saying?
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 . . .”

dimmers, touch controlled lamps, computers, TV birdies, lightning crashes from
distant thunderstorms, electric drills,
motors, industrial processes.
It’s more effective than a noise blanker
because interference much stronger than
your desired signal can be completely
removed without affecting your signal.
It works on all modes -SSB, AM, CW, FM, frequences from
BCB to lower VHF.
Null out strong QRM on top of weak
rare DX and then work him! You can
null out a strong local ham or AM broadcast station to prevent receiver from overloading.
Use MFJ-1026 as an adjustable phasing
network. You can combine two antennas to
give you various directional patterns.
Null out a strong interfering signal or
peak a weak signal at a push of a button.
Easy-to-use! Plugs between transmitting antenna and transceiver. To null,
adjust amplitude and phase controls for
minimum S-meter reading or lowest noise.
To peak, push reverse button.
Use built-in active antenna or an external
one. MFJ’s exclusive Constant Amplitude

Ship Code A
Network of 18 transmitters
around the world!
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-

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).

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.

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

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.
Standard 3/8-inch x 24 mobile antenna
mount built-in for MFJ Mobile Whips, bug

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,

AL-811 . . . 600 WATTS . . . $649!
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 . . .
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.

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-

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

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

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 205219 VAC to 252 to 265 VAC. The amplifier
comes wired from the factory for 240 VAC.
The AL-1500 has two illuminated panel
meters. The Grid Current meter provides continuous reading of the critical grid current and
indicates proper and 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.
Other features include a 12 volt DC auxiliary jack and an “XMT” LED to provide indication of proper amplifier keying by the

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.
A 4:1 true current balun lets you tune
any balanced antenna - - horizontal loops,
vertical loops, multi-band doublets, quads,
folded dipoles, Zepps.
