The LDG KT-100 Autotuner fills a need for Kenwood transceiver owners after the AT-300 antenna tuner was discontinued by Kenwood. The KT-100 is a flexible, low cost, easy to use unit just right for an AT-300 compatible Kenwood transceiver. Of course, most any LDG tuner will work just fine with a Kenwood transceiver, but wouldn't it be great if you could use the Tune button on the radio? So if you have a TS-2000, TS-50, TS-480SAT, TS-570, TS-590, TS-850 or any Kenwood rig that is AT-300 compatible, the new LDG KT-100 serves as a dedicated tuner for Kenwood radios. Just press the Tune button on the radio. The LEDs on the front panel indicate tuning status, and will show a match in seconds, or even less of you’ve tuned on or near that frequency before; the KT-100 has 2,000 memories for instant recall of the tuning parameters for your favorite bands and frequencies.

If you have an AT-300 compatible Kenwood radio, you can simply plug the KT-100 into your transceiver with the provided cable; the interface powers the tuner, and the Tune button on the radio begins a tuning cycle. The supplied IC-KT interface cable makes the KT-100 a dedicated tuner for most modern Kenwood transceivers. Requires a coax jumper cable, not included. And like all LDG products, the KT-100 comes with a two-year, fully transferable warranty. (Not for use with the TS-480HX, so see AT200Pro2).
