Palstar with traditional high quality and feature set is now also available for low power. The Palstar compact tuner AT-500 can handle max 600W transmit power.
The manual tuner Palstar AT-500 is suitable for all bands from 160 to 6 m. It uses a differential capacitor and an inductor precision rollers for tuning. A built-in 4:1 balun enables operation with balanced supply lines and coaxial cables. Setup is very easy to handle, because only two controls (C, L) must be tuned. Roller inductor can be used up to 6 meters, 160 m operation of an additional inductance is on.
The Palstar tuner AT-500 has a tool to cross needles (illuminated), which also offers a peak hold function. The measuring range can be switched from 300 to a maximum of 1000W. 6 position switch is used to switch between 2 coaxial cables, either directly or through the tuner, a balanced line or bypass.
