Quality Company/Product  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Own 2-units, mobile and fixed. Had some RF feedback when running high power(700 watts) at home QTH. Customer Service responded to me in a timely fashion and provided a good fix for my problem. I use an LDG-100-PRO2 tuner at home shack and can hit all the sweet spots on my Tarheel Antenna (26-ground radials and 6-elevated counterpoises), 80 thru 10 meters... With 1:1 on all bands except one which tunes to 1.1:1! After programming from the initial park-position, tuning takes seconds. Much better than manually tuning with the up-down switch and playing around until you hit the lowest SWR reading. Worth every penny.

A Great Controller  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
After struggling with Ameriton SDC-102 controllers I found the TuneMatic Lite.

It has two main advantages:

It has twenty memories instead of the SDC-102 that has ten memories.

The TuneMatic Lile has two motor speeds. When you press the UP or DOWN buttons, the motor moves at low speed so it is easy to find the "sweet spot" for SWR. When you hold the UP or DOWN button for four seconds, the motor goes to high speed to get to the next coarse position. Release the button and you are again at low speed so you can fine tune your setting.

What is really cool about this feature is that, when retrieving a memory position, the motor switches to low speed when approaching the target setting and hits the sweet spot dead on. No more jogging back and forth to hit the lowest SWR.

I have two other SDC-102 controllers and I am replacing them both with the TuneMatic Lite.
