MAT-705 automatic tuner for icom ic 705 and the like
The MAT-705 tunes the coaxial antennas for short waves, the usable frequency range is from 1.8 to 54 MHz. It doesn't matter if it's a vertical, dipolar or directional antenna - the MAT-705 tunes it in. Extremely low energy consumption is taken into account.
The MAT-705 is powered by a 9V block battery, so it doesn't affect the radio's power supply! The tuner relays are bi-stable, that is, they do not absorb current after switching. And if the frequency is not changed in the next few minutes, you can completely turn off the MAT-705, the setting found is maintained by the bi-stable relays. Once found, the small tuner automatically remembers the settings, a maximum of 16000 memories are available. This greatly speeds up the tuning process.
The operation is fully automatic, if you set it accordingly in the radio menu, see instructions for use (Tune on PTT). The required control cable is included. The supplied 9V block battery lasts several weeks, depending on use. The MAT-705 tuner is housed in a sturdy aluminum container, so you can travel with the IC-705.
