The internal tuner is fast and just too convenient to
use. At first I was disappointed that it does not
have memories but at this point is seems irrelevant
and based on comments I have read possibly better.
I have a Butternut vertical tuned to CW on 80 meters
and it tunes the entire 80/75 meter band for me.
Pretty good for an antenna that has about 50 Khz of
less than 2:1 SWR bandwidth on 80/75m.
