I have one of these and though it does work as a manual controller with SWR LED's, there is obviously a lot more to it than that. I had expected a "tune to lowest SWR", but it seems a rig and computer are needed. Anyone know about these? It is NOT the same as the Ameritron of the same name.
Thanks in advance.
Nice little unit. Made in Japan (I bought a couple in Akihabra Tokyo). Designed for Yaesu FT817 and compatible but can be used without a rig with the right configuration. Comes with a windows app to configure it. Well built but documentation is very, very minimal. SuperAntenna sold them for a while and I'm told that Elecraft also sold them for a while. I understand they were fairly popular in Japan which is why I picked up a couple to play with. I think it's perfect for using with the FT817. Too bad you can no longer get them in this country any longer - and maybe not in Japan either!
