Great bargain in QRP automatic antenna tuners  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I was looking for a antenna tuner to go with my SGC-2020. I had heard that LDG products were first rate and I was not disapointed! The kit assembled smoothly with only one missing part. ( One of the 9 toroids. A T50-2. Had one in the old junk box. ) The only problem I encountered was when firing the tuner up for calibration. I had wound xformer T-1 in the wrong direction! The SWR bridge was working backwards!!! After correcting this the tuner worked flawlessly. All of the parts are new, no surplus stuff here. The cabinet was made by TenTec and was first rate also. The only thing I wish that they would change is the color of the front panel to black with white lettering. It would match more rigs than it does now with the existing color scheme. I would buy it again and I am thinking of getting a AT-11MP to use with my Icom 707. You will not go wrong with this one.
