Product Description

The Z-817 is the ultimate autotuner for QRP radios. The Z-817 interfaces to the CAT port (ACC) on the back of the FT-817 radio with the provided cable. Tuning could not be simpler; one button push on the tuner is all that is needed and the Z-817 takes care of the rest. It will switch to PKT mode, transmit a carrier, tune the tuner, then restore the radio to the previous mode! 2000 memories cover 160 through 6 meters.

Of course, the Z-817 will also function as a general purpose antenna tuner with other QRP radios. Just transmit a carrier and press the tune button on the tuner. The Z-817 is powered by four AA internal Alkaline batteries (not included), so there are no additional cables required to use the Z-817.  Latching relays are used so that power consumption is Zero when not tuning allowing a set of batteries to last about one year.

  1. Great little QRP tuner 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Oct 2015

    I received this all the way from Paris, Texas sooner than I expected--GREAT service by MTC!

    Works perfectly with the FT-817ND for that super-quick setup right out of my manpack and into a midget end-fed--three minutes and I'm on the air--either from a hotel room or camping in the woods--which is exactly what I wanted.

    Really satisfied guys--thanks again for the excellent service!

  2. Nice tuner for the 817 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Mar 2015

    A well made,simple to operate tuner for the Yaesu Ft-817. Once set up,just a quick push of the button,the tuner does the rest.I would recommend using either lithium or nihm bstteries in the unit.I've had nothing but bad luck with regular and alkaline batteries,and for the little extra cost of better technology,its worth it. I would buy another one of these tuners without regret or hesitation.
