Does anyone know the name or maker of the simple device that plugs into the automatic tuner connector that allows the operator to use the automatic tuner switch while using a manual tuner.

Assuming you are talking about ICOM radios, take a look at the "IC-706/703 Tuning Interface" in the Articles section of my website at www.ad5x.com.

If it's a Kenwood, and the antenna tuner connects with a molex connector with 2 rows of 3, try connecting a wire between the middle connection of both rows.  This "fools" the radio into thinking that there is an external antenna tuner present, and when you hit the tune button, the radio puts out about 8 watts.  Works great on my TS-570.  Have been running it this way for several years, and this solution provides plenty of RF for my remotely mounted SGC-237.  

Best regards,
