LDG IT-100 Tuner Unboxing

I ordered the LDG IT-100 autotuner from Ham City. The delivered price was $171.14 and was the cheapest I found from the big players. It gets good reviews on and it should work well with my coax fed dipole antennas.

In the box, you get the tuner, a coax jumper cable, a manual, and a control/power cable. The front has a single button that starts the tuning process. The tuner has 2000 memories, so it won't need to repeat the tuning cycle as you run through your favorite frequencies. There are two LEDs. The red one indicates that tuning is in process. The green one indicates SWR conditions.

The rear of the tuner has 50-ohm coax connectors (SO-259) for both the transceiver and the antenna. There is a wing nut to allow for a ground. Lastly, there is a 6-pin mini-DIN for the power/control cable.

I'll update once I've actually connected it to the radio and used the thing.

LDG is giving away a free SP-200 Surge Protector with any tuner purchase before April 15, 2011. The rebate form is here (PDF).
