If you own a Yaesu FT-897 and want a broad range automatic antenna tuner, look no further! The AT-897Plus Autotuner mounts on the side of your FT-897 just like the original equipment. We even added the ability to mount the "feet" on the side of the tuner so when you are transporting your rig by the handle, you can safely set it down and not worry about scratching the case.

If you own a Yaesu FT-897 and want a broad range automatic antenna tuner, look no further! The AT-897Plus Autotuner mounts on the side of your FT-897 just like the original equipment. We even added the ability to mount the "feet" on the side of the tuner so when you are transporting your rig by the handle, you can safely set it down and not worry about scratching the case.

The AT-897Plus is microprocessor controlled and features the tuning ability our customers have come to expect from our products. The tuner has a front panel button to initiate the tuning sequence and will bypass the tuner if pressed momentarily. The red LED lights during while the tuner is active.

The AT-897Plus can be used as is or in conjunction with the W4RT One-Touch Tune interface. Without the W4RT interface, you will change your mode to one which provides a constant carrier (AM, FM, CW, or Packet), key your transmitter, press the tune button, wait for the tuner to tune, then un-key. The W4RT interface allows you to just press the tune button on the AT-897Plus to accomplish tuning the antenna, no matter what mode you are in. The interface takes care of it all.

The AT-897Plus takes power directly from the CAT port of the FT-897 and provides a second CAT port on the back of the tuner so if you are using another CAT device, hooking it up couldn't be easier.

If you are a QRP enthusiast or plan on operating via internal batteries, the AT-897Plus is your tuner! The AT-897Plus does not need a fan, let alone one that is constantly running. Current consumption when it is tuned is in the micro-amp range. Since we use latching relays, you can even remove power from the tuner after you have tuned on the band you are going to operate!

The FT-897 is a great radio. The FT-897 / AT-897Plus combination makes a fantastic shack!

AT 897 Plus tuner
Barry|14-12-2012
Works well on HF perfect tuning, however had a problem tuning on 50MHz showing high SWR and locking out the ATU, contacted LDG and they suggested RF Chokes on the data cable. When fitted all problems solved good SWR.
