Z-100 Automatic Antenna - RXTX
Z-100 Automatic Antenna
Z-100 Automatic Antenna Tuner
Operating range is 1.8 to 54 MHz and will tune a
10:1 SWR (3:1 on 6 meters) down to 1.5:1 or
less. It will tune almost any coax fed antenna
including dipoles, beams, and verticals. Add any
4:1 Balun to use ladder line or to tune long wire
or Zepp antennas.
Please compare the price of the Z-100 to other
brand auto and manual tuners... enough said!
The Z-100 is the definitive low cost automatic antenna
tuner! It has been designed from the ground up to provide
the power handling you asked for, in a small, lightweight
package that is perfect for portable as well as sitting on
your desk in your shack!
The Z-100 will tune with 0.1 to 125 watts (50 watts on 6
meters), making it an excellent choice for almost any radio
or operating style. Backpackers and QRP operators will
appreciate the latching relays. Power can be removed from
the tuner once you have tuned. Additionally, when the
tuner is not tuning, it draws nearly zero amps.
Additionally, the Z-100 features 200 fast memories which
will decrease tuning time up to 95%!
This automatic antenna tuner will interface to many radios
for added convenience. Our optional interfaces integrate
the tuner to the radio so you can take advantage of radio
faceplate "tune buttons" (if so equipped) or tuner signaled
tuning. Please consult your radio manual for details on
using it with an automatic antenna tuner. Interfaces are
available for certain Icom, Alinco, Yaesu, and Kenwood
Simple operation is the key to the Z-100. Provide a
continuous carrier, then press and hold the tune button for
1 second. The Z-100 tunes. The red LED indicates tuner
activity and the green LED indicates an SWR of 1.0 to 1.5
(steady Green LED) and 1.5 to 2.0 (blinking Green LED).
If your antenna is already resonant, place the tuner in
bypass. Pressing and releasing the tune button quickly will
bypass the tuner, taking all tuning components out of line.
