|Customer Reviews for the MFJ-949E.|
|From: Jeff Brone WB2JNA|
|I have been using the MFJ 949E (I bought it used) for a year and a half now and it's a pretty nice tuner. The switching between dummy load and tuner /coax positions is convenient, and the tuner does a good job with any reasonable load I try to tune. The meter is large and easy to read, and the cross needle system for reading SWR takes only a little time to get used to. For the price, it's been very useful to me.|

|This is my third MFJ tuner. I have the 901B and 986 Versatuner. I purchased the 949E for its features such as the cross needle meter, and the internal dummy load. Its pretty much the same as the 901B but it eliminates the need to carry a wattmeter/swr bridge and dummyload when operating portable. The tuner matches most anything I hook it to. As far as reliability all features work as advertised. For someone wanting a tuner for portable operation or for their first tuner for a 100W rig or less I'd highly recommend it. |

|This is a well built tuner and I am using one this week out here in Vermont on the side of a mountain. It is helping me feed a full-wave loop on 18MHz with ladder line. A dandy tuner with all of the basic features. Unless you "run power" this is a totally adequate tuner for every application. Highly recommend !|

|I owned one of these tuners for years and it always performed well. It re-tunes to previous settings quickly and easily.(Just keep a log of your initial settings for each band and frequencies.) If you run ladder line or a coax with an antenna that isn't resonant every where you'd like to operate, then this is a safe way to go. Your rig will thank you! Great quality at a great price!|
