Re: An auto tuner for my IC-7000

Bob Rodgers <kc4tvo@...>
 

I have had poor luck with MFJ tuners.  IMO, for the money, the LDG-100 or 200 Pro II is the best choice.  I have used one for years in the field with my IC-7000s and the shack, it has never faltered.  I also use one in my RMS Winlink station that runs 24/7/365. Now running continuously for over 5 years!  It is simple, quick, automatic, or semi, and it tunes a very wide range. AND it will work fine on other rigs for the future.

I would second the suggestion for the LG-7000. I have an AT-180, and it’s good, but it is pretty limited in terms of antenna matching; 3:1 is about its limit.

HI,
I would like to purchase an automatic tuner for my 7k. I have selected the MFJ-939I and the MFJ-993B.
 I would prefer the latter, as it is way more versatile. However, as far as I have understood, when I change frequency, the 939I tunes up without the need to push the "tune" button, while the 993B requires button pushing.
Have I understood well? 
Any recommendations for a good tuner?

Icom (at least used to) sell tuners for their radio lineup. AH-4, IIRC, is one that should work fine with the 7000. It tunes a random-length wire OK for most bands.

I have the MFJ kw version.  Not sure I would do it again.  Sent the first one purchased back to the factor shortly after purchase.  They kept it a LONG time and finally rather than repairing it sent me a new one.  One thing that I really don't like with mine. When on 80 meters and want to go to a higher frequency it is necessary to remove the power and reset it.  Otherwise it will not tune.  Have had problems with not tuning  on specific frequencies.  Example would not tune on lower end of 80 meters and not at all on 12 meters.  I happen to be using it frequently it finally tuned up on these frequencies.  But still will not tune on 10 meters.  17 Meters I have to walk up in frequencies.  I start tuning on 20 meters, then go next to 17 meters, then to 15 meters, then to 12 meters. I call it walking up in bands is what I call it.  My opinion there is a bad relay and sometimes it works, sometimes not.  

I will likely continue using it, I am a senior citizen and  $$$ comes hard.  But I would not purchase the same unit again. There has to be something much better out there somewhere.

Thanks to all for your answers.
I have the ACC connector supplied with the IC7000, so I will try with that.
I shouldn't have any mic issues because I have to decode a digital signal in reception only.

I paid $900-1000 2-3 years ago, but that included an LG tuner.
