Just in case you are wondering about the "results" of this totally unscientific poll, here is a synopsis.

First, thanks to those responding.  In a nutshell, I had 5 respondents who either currently owned, formerly owned or had actual experience using someone else's HF-AUTO.  Of course there were a number of "kibitzers" - hey, that's to be expected -- after-all, we are hams and don't seem to hold back when it comes to talking or offering opinions ;-)  It's kind of like asking two (2) people about the "best" Italian restaurant, do so and you'll get at least three (3) answers!

4 of the 5 respondents were very positive about the HF-AUTO.  It performed well in most cases and met their needs.
1 of the 5 respondents indicated that the unit did not meet their needs and had experienced catastrophic failure.

None of the respondents indicated that they used the unit in a "remote" application and indeed some correspondence with Palstar indicated that remote use of the HF-AUTO was not tested nor was it recommended due to lack of control lines.

Most reports on eHam are quite positive.

I'm working with a group that is considering purchasing the HF-AUTO and was asked see what others had to say about it.  Thanks for your opinions -- '73 es gud dxing -- Don N4HH

Subject: Opinions on Palstar HF-AUTO wanted

Hi Kids - I'm seeking opinions related to the Palstar HF-AUTO (http://www.palstar.com/en/hf-auto/) and am particularly interested in performance (or lack thereof) on 160 and 80 meters at full legal limit.  Anyone have this tuner or have used this tuner?  If so, I'd like to have your thoughts on it.  All responses will be confidential.  Please reply "off list."  Thanks - 73 es gud dxing -- Don N4HH
