Super Tuner not Plus  Time owned: more than 12 months
Thought I should add a comment to my previous review since I have been ask about this tuner a few time lately. While I think this tuner was rated at full legal power it did get hot and arched at times when I tuned my 600 watt amp. I think it ran cool on SSB and never did run CW with the amp on. I beleive this is true it has been 15 years since I ran an amp. Other than that it is a great tuner and I still use it today.

Super Tuner not plus  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have a Dentron Super Turner not the plus. It did not have the meter or the ant. switch. I believe this thing would tune anything. I have owned it since 1977 and haven't has a minutes worth of trouble. If you find one at a flea market I would suggest buying it in a minute.

It has been in continous service since 1979.  Time owned: more than 12 months
This is one solidly built tuner. Compaired to similiar products, this Dentron Radio Co. product was built for the long haul, unlike some MFJ look alike models. I have not since 79 had an antenna, rain gutter or tower that could not be pressed into service. Of course, the Super Tuner Plus lacks a lighted dual cross meter, but the forward relative power meter on the front panel still works after 22 years. If Dentron Radio Company were still in business....
