Comet CAT-300 1.8 – 50MHz Manual Antenna Tuner

Boost your ham radio's performance with Comet Antennas CAT-300. This high-quality antenna tuner features a compact and sturdy design, making it easy to transport and install. With a frequency range of 1.8-50 MHz and power handling up to 300 watts, the CAT-300 ensures reliable and efficient signal transmission.

 

The Comet Antennas CAT-300 Manual Antenna Tuner is a versatile and compact tuner suitable for use in both portable and base station setups. Equipped with an attractive precision cross meter, this tuner simultaneously measures forward power, reflected power, and Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) to provide a comprehensive view of your antenna's performance.

The meter is illuminated, making it easy to read in low ambient light when external 11 to 15 VDC is connected. Additionally, push-button switches allow you to select Average or PEP in 30 or 300 watt ranges, offering greater control over your tuning process.

With the ability to handle up to 300 watts PEP SSB, the CAT-300 is ideal for tuning dipole, vertical, mobile whip, long wire, and other types of antennas on the 160-6 meter amateur bands. The tuner features two rear panel SO-239s and a binding post for a long wire to provide antenna connections, making it easy to integrate into your existing setup.

The tuning range is maximized with two variable capacitors, labeled "TR Tune" and "X Tune," while a "Band" inductor selector simplifies the tuning process by providing frequency labels for amateur bands. The tuner bypass switch and two antenna ports round out the well-designed low power antenna tuner.

Enjoy the "hands-on" flexibility of the Comet CAT-300 1.8 – 50 MHz Manual Antenna Tuner, a tuner that provides comprehensive performance data and offers greater control over your tuning process.  Michael Brigmond Comet Antenna Brand Manager GigaParts 3/21/2023
