The LDG YT-100 is an automatic tuner intended for use with modern Kenwood transceivers. It works with popular Yaesu transceivers including the FT857, FT897 and FT-100 (including all D models). The interface cable is included.
The YT-100 connects to the radio via its Tuner port to control the tuning cycle; the transceiver’s Tune button controls the tuner. The radio’s Tuner port also powers the tuner, so it requires no external power supply. The YT-100 handles up to 125 watts SSB or CW (100 watts on 6 meters).
The YT-100 integrates with you Kenwood transceiver for seamless operation. Since the YT-100 is matched to your specific rig, you just press the Tune button on the radio, and the rig and tuner do the rest: reduces power, transmits a carrier, automatically matches the antenna to the rig, then restores the original power and mode.
Like all LDG tuners the YT-100 operates automatically, beginning a tuning cycle whenever the SWR exceeds a preset limit. It also features LDG’s advanced memory tuning, providing 2,000 memory locations; when tuning near a previously used frequency it will recall the settings for nearly instant tuning. It learns your favorite frequencies and bands as you use it. You can also start a tuning cycle manually whenever necessary.
