|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-941E.|
|From: Bryan Smith W3INS|
I purchased an MFJ 941E VersatunerII yesterday at Timonium Hamfest in Maryland. I am using it on a Alpha Delta, DXCC antenna in the back yard. It took some getting used to at first, but it works great, and I received great reports so far. I have an ICOM 706 in the house as a \'back-up\' rig and that is the rig I am using it on. I also have an ICOM 746, but I have a vertical for that rig, which doesn\'t need a tuner.
The lighted meter, and the mter itself(analog) look great. I hate digital meters. The other nice thing is the ability to have two coax\'s connected to this, and the ability to put other kinds of feed lines to it.

|The MFJ-941E does exactly what it is supposed to do - let the transmitter "see" 50 ohms. I have used the MFJ-941E on all bands - 1.8 to 30 MHz, working QRP. It is easy to learn and use. It is great to be able to have 3 different antennas connected to the tuner, and with a twist of the Antenna Selector I can change to a "better" antenna for use with the band conditions. For its lighted meter you can hook a 12 volt wall wart to the rear of the tuner. I tried a 6 volt for a dimmer look. Now I use an old 12 volt security battery and give it a charge about once every 6 months. Thanks MFJ for a nice piece of equipment!|

|For my money, this is the BEST 300 Watt HF tuner I've found! I've had and used several over the years, for both Ham and MARS operations. The only drawback is that at lower frequencies, primarily 160 Meters, the tuning caps have a tendency to arc, necessitating making an adapter for parallel feeding of the antenna, which causes potential stray RF in the shack. Otherwise for the typical 100-Watt station, this tuner can't be beat!|MFJ-1702CANTENNA SWITCH, 2 POS. W/LIGHTNING PROTECTOR$39.95
