|Amateur Antenna Tuners|
The SGC SG-239 ushers in a renaissance of HF communications, as it will work with any transceiver to provide long distance communications across borders and continents. By using the SG-239 antenna coupler, anyone can achieve great results (1.8-30 MHz) with a longwire antenna or a coaxial fed multi resonant antenna at the window of a condo in a big city or the small roof of a house. The possibilities are unlimited!
The new SG-239 fits the coupler requirement of the many low cost HF transceivers on the market, including among others, Scout, Yaesu FT-817, Kenwood TS-50, Icom IC-706 and the K2 kit. Of course, the SG-239 is ideal with the legendary SG-2020 transceiver.
Performance features of the SG-239 are far ahead of its modest price tag. The unit will work with silent receiver tuning or within the power range of 1.5 to 200 watts with a high power transceiver. It has 170 memory bins (165 TX, 5 RX), with fast, accurate tuning via independent sensors, including VSWR, phase, magnitude, low impedance, and forward sensing. Other couplers only sense the VSWR for a proper match – the SG-239 does it all and does it fast. And, if you recall the tuning setting from memory, tuning is even faster.
