The LDG AT-897 is an autotuner for use with the FT-897 or FT-897D. If you own a Yaesu FT-897/897D and want a broad range automatic antenna tuner, look no further! The AT-897 Autotuner mounts on the side of your FT-897 just like the original equipment. LDG even added the ability to mount the "feet" on the side of the tuner so when you are transporting your rig by the handle, you can safely set it down and not worry about scratching the case. The tuner has a front panel button to initiate the tuning sequence and will bypass the tuner if pressed momentarily. To use the AT-897, change your mode to one which provides a constant carrier (AM, FM, CW, or Packet), key your transmitter, press the tune button, wait for the tuner to tune, then un-key. The red LED lights during while the tuner is active.

The AT-897 takes power directly from the CAT port of the FT-897 and provides a second CAT port on the back panel of the tuner so if you are using another CAT device, hooking it up couldn't be easier. With interface cable. If you are a QRP enthusiast or plan on operating via internal batteries, the AT-897 is your tuner! The AT-897 does not need a fan, let alone one that is constantly running. Current consumption when it is tuned is in the micro-amp range. Since LDG uses latching relays, you can even remove power from the tuner after you have tuned on the band you are going to operate! Two year limited mfg. warranty.
