With its custom-designed inductor switch, 1000-volt tuning capacitors, and Teflon insulation washers, you can enjoy arc-free operation with up to 300 watts over a frequency range of 1.8 – 30 MHz. Connect using coax, random wire, or balanced lines, thanks to the heavy-duty 4:1 balun.

MFJ-949E - 300W 1.8 - 30 MHz Tuner with Dummy Load The inductor switch in the MFJ-949E is often the weak link in most antenna tuners. However, our custom-designed inductor switch is built to withstand the high RF voltages and currents that occur during tuning. This ensures long-lasting performance without the worry of overheating or burnout.

Equipped with an 8-position Super Antenna Switch, the MFJ-949E allows you to select between two coax-fed antennas, random wire/balanced line, or the built-in dummy load. The full-size 3-inch lighted Cross Needle Meter provides clear readings of SWR, true peak forward power, and average reflected power. No more straining your eyes to read tiny meters. Choose between the 300-watt or 30-watt ranges to accurately monitor your signal.
