Reviews Summary for LDG AT-100ProII Autotuner
LDG AT-100ProII Autotuner Reviews: 24 Average rating: 4.3/5 MSRP: $230
Description: The LDG AT-100ProII desktop tuner covers all frequencies from 1.8 – 54 MHz like the AT-100Pro it replaces, plus it
has LED indicators for antenna 1/2 selection to indicate when it's in bypass.

It will handle up to 125 watts, making it suitable for everything from QRP to a typical 100 watt transceiver (plus headroom).

The AT-100ProII includes 2,000 memories for each antenna, automatically storing tuning configurations for each frequency and band as you use them. Whenever you transmit on or near a frequency you’ve used before, the AT-100ProII can retune from memory almost instantly.

LED bargraphs show power (in 2 ranges) and SWR, and a Function key on the front panel allows you to access data like MODE and STATUS. Like most other LDG Autotuners, the AT-100ProII uses latching relays which retain the tuned configuration indefinitely even when powered down and a processor-controlled Switched-L tuning network which can match dipoles, verticals, inverted-Vees or virtually any coax-fed antenna. With an optional LDG balun, you can also use longwires or antennas fed with ladder-line.

• 1 to 125 watt power range (SSB and CW), 100W on 6M
• Tuning time: 0.5 to 6 seconds full tune, 0.2 sec memory
• Tunes 6 to 1000 ohm loads (16 to 150 on 6M)
Product is in production.

Good quality and value  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I am very happy with this tuner. You can select the match ratio that the machine sees as its goal. A 2:1 match is the default. I find that not working the tuner too hard, accepting a 2:1 match, and then manually stepping up or down the values at low power can give equally fine results as a manual tuner. Raise the power, and then manually input the final values. I can tune my imperfect, indoor 10 meter dipole to better than 1.5:1 SWR at 7.05 Mhz. The bargraph displays are very accurate and useful. Readings from the meter verify readings from the radio, and give you a very good idea of how hard you are working your equipment against the antenna system. This machine is a tremendous improvement over earlier, less featuresque models. Having owned manual tuners in the past, I would say that the AT100proII has made a convert out of me, and that this autotuner is here to stay

A lightweight  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I purchased this to touch up the swr on my 4BTV and it proved to be a poor match for my antenna. Had to drag out the old MFJ-986 which would probably tune a nail. I guess I have a nice new paperweight now.

Great Auto Tuner  Time owned: more than 12 months
Had a stroke that took out use of left hand. My mfj-941 needed two hands, so I needed an auto. Friend had the LDG AT-100 ProII for sale. Near top of my 'best buys' list. Rock solid for me and tech support responsive to my queries.

Works Great!  Time owned: more than 12 months
I have used the LGD 100 Pro II for over a year and a half now with zero issues. My station is an Icom 7300 running 100 watts to a 40 Metre Horizontal Loop fed with 600 Ohm Open-Wire Line to a 4:1 Current Balun. I have not had any problems with it, as it tunes from 40-6 Metres with an SWR of 1.3 or lower! Recently I upgraded to an LDG 600 Pro II, as I purchased a 600 Watt Amp, so I will write a review on that model in the future. If you are looking for an quality auto tuner that is easy to use, look no further than LDG! The quality is so much better than MFJ (Mighty Fine Junk)!

Won't remember tune  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My cheap MDF 901B manual tuner will give a better SWR and the LDG does not remember the tuning settings as advertised. I'm running ALE and have to use an auto-tuner. Overpriced and overhyped.

Has worked great   Time owned: more than 12 months
I bought this tuner over a year ago, and bought it due to having 2 ports in the back, and like the swr/wattmeter it has on it, reads up to a 125 watts, and has tuned my G5RV on 10-80m bands, in no time...I usually just use the 20m, 40m, and 80m bands on this dipole, and it seems to work well with my Yaesu Ft 450d....

There is away to set what swr you want the autotuner to tune the swr too, you have to look at the directions in the book, but it can be done in just a minute or two, so don't let this have any affects on buying one does work great for what I use my radio and dipole for...

I was looking at another tuner when I bought this one, actually my Elmer told me about this one and about the product, ect, so I thought I'd try it and so glad I did...and I'm sure it will work on different radios...

Did it's job  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Just purchased this yesterday and set it up today, worked great. Had a "no-tuner" required 8 band EFHW 8010 antenna that would tune nothing with my 857D. Set up the AT100Pro II and all is bliss.

If things change in the future, I will update the
5 star rating but, for now anyway, with out it, all I had was 2 meter and 440. With it, I have HF.

Well worth the $185 as opposed to frying the 857D with high SWR.

Bad LDG support & unstable tuner  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Tuner works great if it does work but for some reason it will retune by itself even with a already tuned 1.1:1 SWR. Antenna is not a problem since my AT-600Pro2 never had that issue with the exact same set-up. I needed to move my AT-6+00 to a different radio and just need a 125w rated ATU. LDG customer service is the worst in this industry. Great if it works but LDG is known for 2 things, bad customer service and hit n' miss products.

jury still out  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Brand new and had a difficult time tuning the same antenna that my ldg z-11pro ii tunes quite well. I was surprised and could not get it to work for me as my LDG z-11 nor my elecraft tuner. I sent it back to LDG in FEBRUARY 2015 for a checkout and STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED IT BACK! I requested a status report and was denied citing company policy. I really like the product having owned several of the tuners and still using one of them. Not sure what the problem is with customer service but hopefully one day it will come home and work for me

Love it and LDG.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This tuner does exactly what it is supposed to do. While I love the nostalgia of using an old manual tuner it sure is neat to transmit and be tuned in a matter of seconds with an LDG tuner. This tuner works as good or better than any of its competitors. There is no perfect auto tuner but they sure beat the internal tuners of the new rigs. The AT-100Pro 2 tunes quickly and has the ability to switch between two antennas. It is ruggedly built and looks nice on my desk. One thing it has that the the others don't have is the great LDG service. I recently damaged my Z11 Pro through negligence on my part. It was a few years out of warranty. I just received it back from them repaired at no charge. This happened once before and again sent back repaired at no charge. Wow! Now that is great service. I have owned all of the LDG 125 watt tuners. They are a really good value for a quality product.
