LDG Electronics Z-817 automatic antenna tuners are the ultimate auto-tuners for QRP radios, including the Yaesu FT-817(D). The Z-817 tuners interface to the CAT port (ACC) on the back of the FT-817 radio with the provided cable. Tuning could not be simpler--one push on the tuner button is all that is needed and the Z-817s take care of the rest. They will switch to PKT mode, transmit a carrier, tune the tuner, and then restore the radio to the previous mode! The 2,000 memories cover 160 through 6 meters. Of course, LDG Z-817 tuners will also function as general-purpose antenna tuners with other QRP radios. Just transmit a carrier and press the tune button on the tuners. The Z-817 tuners are powered by four AA internal alkaline batteries only (not included). So an additional power cable isn't required to use the Z-817s. Latching relays are used so that power consumption is zero when not tuning, allowing a set of batteries to last about one year.

Additional features include:

* RF power is 0.1 to 20 watts SSB, CW, and digital modes
* Latching relays for ultra-low power consumption
* Battery-operated 4 x 1.5V alkaline AA (not included)
