Palstar AT-500 HF Manual Antenna Tuner 600 Watt PEP, The Palstar introduces the AT-500 600 Watt PEP antenna tuner. All of the Palstar quality and features that Hams worldwide have come to expect are now available in a compact, lower power, lower priced tuner, the AT-500 Covers 160 to 6 Meters, and the AT-500 features a differential tuning capacitor with 2 stators and 1 rotor, a precision ceramic body roller inductor, and a 4:1 ferrite current balun for balanced line feeds.
The AT-500 utilizes only 2 controls to operate for tuning, providing maximum ease of use in a manual tuner. A small-sized roller inductor operates all the way up to 6 Meters, while a relay-switched add-on inductor allows 160 Meter operation. The AT-500 also features active Peak and Peak Hold dual cross-needle metering (found in our popular PM2000A wattmeter). Add 11ga. (.090" thick) chem-film-treated aluminum metalwork and durable powder-coated finish on the front panel and top cover, and you have a tuner that will grace your shack for years to come.
If you want to buy a high-quality, American Made product, The Palstar AT-500 is an ideal entry-level antenna tuner. When you buy a Palstar tuner you're not just buying a piece of quality equipment - you're buying a product from a made-in-the-USA manufacturer carrying on the American Ham tradition.
