Palstar HF-AUTO 1800 Watt Automatic Antenna Tuners take it to the next level and offer auto-tuning with a power rating of 1,800 watts. Originally rated at 1500 watts, Palstar has increased the rating to reflect the true capability of their tuner.

Like all Palstar products, the HF-AUTO automatic antenna tuner was designed by Hams for Hams, carrying on the Palstar tradition for high-quality products. Auto-tuners have been around for years, but most of them use clacking relays and lumped components so that the match is always just a little bit off. Palstar reinvented the auto-tuner with quiet, continuously variable components for a perfect match every time. They capped off this achievement with a unit that can tune with only 2 watts of power, but can handle up to 1,800 watts.

Palstar stands behind HF-AUTO automatic antenna tuners with a one year limited warranty.

Like most Hams, you've probably tried tuners made by the "other" guys. If you're ready for a switch to a high-quality, the Palstar HF-AUTO 1800 Watt Automatic Antenna Tuners represent the cutting-edge of Palstar technology.

I have a handicap that keeps me from a manual turner. This is great because not only tuns it switches antennas automatically.

I contemplated ordering this tuner due to cost. I've been checking out for 6 months the reviews. Finally I decided to take the plunge. This is one of the best investments I have ever made in ham radio. So simple but yet so effective. If you have a variety of antennas and bands, jump in with me 73 Herb K2LNS
