Constructed with a weather-tight ABS plastic cabinet top and a durable stainless steel bottom, the MFJ-998RT guarantees long-lasting durability and protection against the elements. Its compact design, weighing 9.5 pounds, makes it suitable for desktop or portable setups. Measuring 13 3/4 x 6 3/4 x 17 1/2 inches, it offers a spacious interior while being easy to integrate into your existing setup.

With the inclusion of the MFJ-4117 BiasTee Power Injector, you can conveniently send DC/RF down the coaxial line, reducing clutter and simplifying your setup.

The MFJ-998RT sets itself apart with its advanced tuning capabilities. It employs MFJ’s exclusive IntelliTune, AdaptiveSearch, and InstantRecall algorithms, allowing it to match impedances from 12 – 1600 Ohms almost instantly. Thanks to over 20.000 VirtualAntenna Memories, frequency and band changes are now a breeze.

The InstantRecall feature ensures lightning-fast tuning by quickly checking if the frequency has been used before. If so, tuning is instantaneous. In case the frequency is new, the IntelliTune algorithm, utilizing MFJ’s efficient SWR Analyzer technology, measures the impedance, automatically adjusts the necessary components, and fine-tunes the SWR for optimal performance.

Even if the antenna impedance falls outside the tuner’s measurement range, the AdaptiveSearch algorithm steps in. By measuring the frequency and determining only relevant component values, it rapidly searches for the optimal tuning settings.

With 2500 Virtual Antenna Memory slots available, you can easily store and retrieve your preferred tuning settings, ensuring hassle-free switching between different setups and configurations. Additionally, the MFJ-998RT features one coaxial antenna input and a binding post for end-fed long-wire antennas, providing versatility and flexibility for various antenna types.

Worried about missing out on future updates? Don’t be. The MFJ-998RT is equipped with field upgradeable firmware, allowing you to download and upgrade your unit remotely via the serial port. This ensures that you always have access to the latest features and improvements as soon as they are introduced.

In summary, the MFJ-998RT 1500W 1.8 – 30 MHz Remote Auto Tuner is the pinnacle of automatic antenna tuners. With its high power handling capability, lightning-fast tuning, extensive memory capacity, and remote upgradeability, it offers a seamless and hands-free experience, making it an essential addition to any high-power station setup.
