The AH-4 only tunes on command from the Icom radio so it will not "hunt" as the whip moves around. The SWR presented to the radio may go up and down as the whip moves. If you have the radio set to initiate tuning when sensing a high SWR (greater than 1.5:1) then it may go into tune mode on its own as the whip moves around. The solution of course is to leave this function set to its default OFF condition.

The SGC tuners do have the "hunting" problem because they are not controlled by the radio. Any time they see an SWR over 2:1 they attempt to re-tune. The SGC SmartLock accessory provids a switch that you can use to lock the tuner settings once it has been tuned so that it will not "hunt".
