Best fast tune ALE coupler you can buy  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is the Rolls Royce of fast tune, ALE compatible antenna matching units. Easily can handle 500 watts PEP and will match just about anything. Control interface may be a challenge but is doable. Getting parts and service from manufacturer way too expensive unless you are on a government budget. If you want manufacturer service, get a Palstar HF-Auto. If you like military quality equipment and an interface design challenge buy one of these if you can find one for sale.

Fantastic tuner  Time owned: more than 12 months
It tunes my 13m vertical from 80m to 10m without any problem. For 160m I had to add a coil at the bottom of the antenna.

Quality is great, of military standards.

I put it in a Pelican case together with the added coil and a ferrite balun for the coaxial cable.

W7KF has written a very nice article explaining how to connect the tuner to any transmitter. Look at http://www.w7kf.com/Articles/Projects/KF-382Interface.html
