I have several of them, they were all around $150-200.
They certainly are a reasonably good tuner, but keep in mind there
are now at least two T-network tuners available that handle just as
much or more power over a wider frequency range. The Ameritron
ATR30 will handle more power over a wider frequency and wider
impedance range, and the Palstar seems to satisfy people with
higher power also although I have no first hand experience with that
All of my KW Matchboxes are now in the storage shed because of
the limited matching and frequency coverage. I mostly use my
tuners outside at or near the antenna, not in the house.
