Does anyone know where I can download a manual for MFJ's 949C tuner?

Tnx

Try the MFJ website... I found a manual there for the 949E which is almost identical.

  Tuners are not rocket science - this manual should do it.

Good luck,

Here's a link to MFJ's home page.

http://www.mfjenterprises.com/index.php

Click the manuals text in the big blue box.  

I didn't see the 949c in the list, but I did see the 949e.

Tnx for the info.

The tuner is fairly different.  The 949E has features and settings on the dials that the 949C doesn't.

If it's a T-network they all pretty much work the same... two variable caps and an inductor.  The rest is just switches that control where the RF is going, and a meter circuit.

If you need help, contact me: axelwik@hotmail.com

If it doesn't have a cross needle meter, you will have to calibrate the meter for a full scale reading at the power setting you are using to tune your antenna or you will not get anything close to an accurate SWR reading.  On some of the MFJ stuff it is not clear what combo of buttons you need to press to do that.
