Well, I have had my TenTec #253 AutoTuner for several
weeks now, but used it fairly little. It is connected
via ladder line to my 80m antenna and was used last
weekend at 100w for the NAQP CW...
I'm stuck between building a small "box" to connect to
the remote control jack (15 pin Molex) and selling it?
Very nice tuner, but I need it only for 80m...
Anyway, I just got back from the parts store where I
purchased a mating 15 pin Molex connector to begin the
building of the "box."
The plan is to use the band select lines for several
preset spots of the 80m band...to allow QSY across the
entire band without tuning and just flip switch to select
preset/pretuned band portions...
I am interested in what others have built for this type
of purpose? I also plan to wire remote LEDs for the control
indicators as the tuner is on my top shelf and I'd just
like a small control "box" right by the radios (FT-1000d
Anyone have thoughts about this?
