A great tuner!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have had this tuner ever since it first came out in the eighties, never parted with it and it has survived despite rigs being changed over the years. I have used the tuner with end fed antenna's, G5RV's and it variants, dipoles and the rest.If you want a first class manual tuner that is reliable, tunes virtually anything then this is it, look out for one and buy!

Really nice tuner  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
This is my second 419 and it's going to stay in the shack this time .I find it tunes just about anything that you connect to it,not like the MFJ range .If anyone is after a manual tuner go for one of these .

Looks the Part  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I've just got a CNW-419 from E-Bay. What a size! A serious looking bit of kit.

Unfortunately this came without a user manual. Anybody able to tell me where I can get one?

One other thing. It doesn't appear to work at anything over 18MHz. Any ideas?

Good Work!!  Time owned: more than 12 months

i have also a Daiwa CNW-419 tuner!
Works great! Automatic would be a nice thing, but i have the positions of the knobs for each band on paper so no problem for fast tuning!!!

Obviously hard to find!  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I tried to get one of these on the used market for a long time. Now I found one and now I know why (nearly) one gives his 419 away! A rig for a lifetime!

All Round Excellent  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Got one of these off ebay for about half the price of an MFJ equivalent and wouldn't swap it for anything, very accurate meter and will tune in anything,

If you see one second hand, don't hesitate to buy it!

Excellent piece of kit  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had my CNW419 for two years now and wouldn't swap it for anything.
It tunes any piece of wire and the cross needles are vey very accurate.
I have tried other ATU's but they're not a patch on the CNW419.

In a word it's BOMB PROOF, if you get a chance to get one do yourself a favour and get one.

Very very good  Time owned: more than 12 months
It's a wonderful tuner. I tested other tuners like MFJ, Magnum, etc. but no one was like DAIWA CNW419. Its crossneedles meter is very precise and it isn't sensible to change of frequency, that is it's very precise in each frequency you use it, not so the other tuners I tested.
Many thanks and sorry for my English (I am Italian...!!).

Great  Time owned: more than 12 months
It's a fantastic tuner. It tunes everything, it's a tuner forever! My question is, why only a few people gives a reviews obout Daiwa tuners? I read a lot of bad reviews on MFJ. Well again i don't have 1 thing to complain here.

God day to everyone
