I have an IC-7000 and I bought an LDG AT-200 PRO II this week.
The tuner really acts erratic & now it's on it's way back to
the store from where I bought it.
I also noticed that the SWR varies way too fast during a tune
cycle. The tuner even wants to spend a long time trying
to tune a resonant antenna while
subjecting the 7000 to very high SWR. The 2000 memories that the
LDG claims to have doesn't seem to work. The tuner wants to tune
almost all the time.
Oh, when placing the tuner in bypass mode and using a dummy load
as the antenna the LDG's LED SWR meter reads almost 2:1 while
the IC-7000 is seeing 1:1.
Good luck and I understand Matt at SARTS does excellent work.

My IC-7000 crapped out, again, at Field day last year, no
, or low power on HF, (don’t think it’s the fuse problem, as
the power cord is not fused, connects to a
rigrunner)...second time it happened. and Field day was the
first time back on the air after the other repair.....I was
talking to Matt at SARTS and he asked if by chance I was
using an LDG tuner, which I have been, both time it did this
, and he said for some reason the 7000 doesn’t like the LDG
tuner, that even though its on low power, when it does it
search the SWR varies too much too fast.....any one else
experience this.....the radio works fin on VHF/UHF, and
receives fine on HF, but only puts out about 15-20 watts or
so....Matt suspects it’s the finals, but the previous
repairs had something to do with the driver circuitry....
