Will tune up an old bathtub!  Time owned: more than 12 months
This was my first tuner and it has been excellent. The tuning controls are smooth and easy to read and the band switches on the bottom of each mean the dips are quite broad and easy to find. SWR meter is excellent and I have never found anything it couldn't tune. It also has a bypass switch that works for every antenna position.

Also has a balun for balanced feeder - if you buy one, make sure it comes with this fitted

Unfortunately it will only handle 300W so no good with my new linear.

If you are only running barefoot and you see one of these, buy it. You won't regret it.

beefier than MFJ..LIMITED TUNING ABILITY  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
iHAVE THE MN-75
THE MN-7 IS A DIFFERENT ANIMAL. VERY LIMITED TUNING RANGE.

THIS TUNER DOES NOT WORK WELL ON THE WARC BANDS

HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE THE OLDER 6 BANDRIGS 160M-10m
IT BEATS AN MFJ ONLY IN POWER HANDLING AND CONSTRUCTION.

THIS IS A GOOD ANTENNA FOR TRAPPED VERTICALS.
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO GET FLAT SWR THROUGH OUT A BAND.

RANDOM WIRES.....FORGET IT
GET THE MN-75 INSTEAD.
