MFJ-976 – Balanced Line Tuner


The MFJ-976 is a 1500-watt full legal limit fully balanced antenna tuner. You get superb balance, very wide matching ranges (12-2000 Ohms) and continuous 1.8-30 MHz coverage including all WARC bands! It handles a full 1500 watts SSB and CW.


You can tune any balanced lines including 600 Ohm open wire line, 450/300 Ohm ladder lines, and 300/72 Ohm twin lead – shielded or unshielded. The MFJ-976 also tunes random wires and coax-fed antennas. MFJ’s fully balanced extremely wide-range T-network gives you simple, fast three-knob tuning. 


No complicated switching between high and low impedance and switching in additional capacitance of L-networks. Four separate 500 pF in two gangs gives you a total of 2000 pF for highly efficient low loss separation on 160 meters.

MFJ-976 - Balanced Line Tuner

You get excellent 10-meter performance because of MFJ’s low minimum capacitance and exclusive self-resonance KillerTM high-quality AirCoreTM roller inductor with silver plated contacts. The MFJ-976 1500-watt fully balanced antenna tuner has a heavy-duty 1:1 current balun that gives you superb balance and stays cool even at 1.5 KW. True active peak reading lighted cross-needle SWR/Wattmeter lets you read SWR, true peak or average forward and reflected power all at a glance on 300/3000-watt ranges.
