High power classic  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Finally found this unit from an estate dispersal in Ontario Canada..Mint shape....These are classic roller inductor based high power tuners.....This unit easily tunes up all bands and what ever antenna you meter on board which is a good thing....meters on tuners are very inaccurate generally...most serious hams use a good stand alone watt / swr meter in line for power and SWR measurements....As the last review mentioned......these are nice pces of equipment.....quality is evident
the only thing its missing is an on board "bypass" switch.....but this can be achieved with a coax switch outside the tuner...Hard to find...a keeper....

Very Nice Piece..  Time owned: more than 12 months
Honestly, I never even heard of Hammond before last year. I did some repair work for a friend, and he was going to take the Hammond tuner to a Hamfest to sell..but I took the unit for payment instead. This is a typical 80's vintage tuner, well built, excellent layout, with a very nice roller inductor. I have used it on all bands with no problem at all, tuning long wires, dipoles and verticals. I would compare it to the older Dentron Tuners, rugged, solid and reliable..The counter, on the roller inductor, is set for two counts per revolution.. excellent piece.
