The MFJ-949E is a 300 watt RF output power antenna tuner that will match any transmitter or transceiver to virtually any antenna. Peak or average forward and reflected power and SWR can be read on the illuminated cross-needle meter.
The MFJ-949E uses a “T” matching network and covers all bands between 160 and 10 meters. This network will tune dipoles, inverted-vees, verticals, mobile whips, beams, random wires, and many other antennas.
The MFJ-949E has rear panel connectors for coaxial, single wire or two wire feedlines. A built-in 4:1 balun allows the use of balanced open wire, twinlead, or twin-axial feedlines. An internal eight position antenna-selector switch selects a built-in 50 ohm dummy load, two separate coaxial line outputs, or a single wire line-balanced line output. All of these functions can be selected in tuned (with tuner’s “T” network in line) or bypassed (no tuning circuit) configurations.
Full 1.8-30MHz Operation
Custom designed inductor switch, 1000 volt tuning capacitors, Teflon insulation washers and proper L/C ratio gives you arc-free no worries operation with up to 300 Watts 1.8 to 30 MHz.
Tunes any Antenna
Tunes out SWR on dipoles, verticals, inverted vees, random wires, beams, mobile whips, shortwave receiving antennas…. Nearly anything! Use coax, random wire or balanced lines. Has heavy duty 4:1 balun.
Custom Inductor Switch
The inductor switch is the most likely component to burn up in any antenna tuner. MFJs inductor switch in the MFJ-949E was custom designed to withstand the extremely high RF voltages and currents that are developed in your tuner.
8-Position Super Antenna Switch
Lets you select two coax fed antennas, random wire/balanced line or built-in dummy load through your MFJ-949E or direct to your transceiver
Large 3″ Cross-Needle SWR/Wattmeter
Has MFJs full size 3-inch lighted Cross Needle Meter (not a puny “meter” you cant read). Lets you easily read SWR, true peak forward and average reflected power simultaneously on 300 Watt or 30 Watt ranges. Lamp has on/off switch, requires 12 VDC or 110 VAC with MFJ-1312D.
MFJs QRM-Free PreTune™ lets you pre-tune your MFJ-949E off-the-air into its built-in dummy load! Makes tuning your actual antenna faster and easier.
Plus much more!
Full size built-in non-inductive 50 Ohm dummy load, scratch-proof Lexan multi-colored front panel, superior cabinet and construction and more!
