PALSTAR ANTENNA TUNERS

A lifetime of excellence in engineering is inside every Palstar product.  Manual or automatic, these antenna tuners will last a lifetime.

HF-AUTO

Automatic tuning up to 1800 watts

The Palstar HF-AUTO 1800 watt automatic antenna tuner covers 160 to 6 Meters with a power rating of up to 1800 watts PEP. Hams have enjoyed the benefits of low power auto-tuners for years, but now Palstar takes it to the next level and offers auto-tuning with a power rating of 5 Watts to 1800 watts.

Like all Palstar products the HF-AUTO was designed by Hams for Hams carrying on the Palstar tradition for high-quality products designed and made in the USA.

Auto-tuners have been around for years, but most of them use clacking relays and lumped components so that the match is always just a little bit off. Palstar reinvented the auto-tuner with continuously variable components for a perfect match every time, and capped it off with a power rating of 5 Watts to 1800 watts. 

HF-AUTO-R

Remote Control for HF-AUTO

$490.00

The Palstar HF-AUTO-R is the full-function remote control unit for use with the HF-AUTO automatic antenna tuner. The HF-AUTO-R allows for remote operation of the HF-AUTO base unit up to 500' away and duplicates all buttons, controls, and display info.

AT5K

3500 Watt PEP Antenna Tuner

$1241.00

The new AT5K 3500 watt antenna tuner covers 15m to 160m with limited Z range on 10m with a power rating of up to 3500 watts PEP. The AT5K takes power handling to the next level over the AT4K, coming in with a rating of 3500 watts single tone continuous performance with low losses & wide Z range. Bands coverage is 160m to 15m with limited Z range on 10m. The AT5K provides balanced OUTPUT with high power 5kW TEFLON cable balun at the INPUT of the tuner circuit for excellent balanced feed antenna operation.

AT4K

2500 Watt PEP Antenna Tuner

$945.00

The Palstar AT4K 2500 watt antenna tuner covers 160 to 10 Meters with a power rating of up to 2500 watts PEP. The AT4K is the tuner that built Palstar's reputation for high-quality and "Built-Like-A-Tank" durability. Unwilling to rest on our laurels, over the years Palstar has added new features to our classic

AT2K

2000 Watt PEP Antenna Tuner

$540.95

The new AT2K 2000 watt antenna tuner covers 160 to 6 Meters with a power rating of up to 2000 watts PEP and features a newly-designed, smaller roller inductor allowing the AT2K to tune 6 Meters without the need for the additional red button as on older models. The updated design for the capacitors features lower minimum capacitance for improved high band performance, while maximum capacitance has been increased to 400pF for better low band performance.

AT2KD

2000 Watt PEP Differential Antenna Tuner

$570.00

The Palstar AT2KD antenna tuner covers 6 to 160 Meters with a power rating of up to 2000 watts PEP and is identical in all respects to the AT2K except instead of three controls, the tuner features just two to tune your antenna.

The AT2KD matches dipoles, center fed doublets, Verticals, end-fed wire, delta loops, beams, Windoms, Inverted V's and an optional external 4:1 or 1:1 current balun for balanced wire feeders can be purchased during check-out.

BT1500A

1500 Watt PEP Balanced Antenna Tuner

$770.00

The BT1500A 1500 watt balanced antenna tuner is the only 1500 Watt, Double-L Network antenna tuner on the market today covering 20m to 160m (2500+/-j2500) and 10m - 15m (1000+/-j1000). The BT1500A features two tandem mounted, precision ceramic roller inductors for a truly balanced tuner.

AT-500

600 Watt Antenna Tuner

$474.95

The Palstar quality and features that Hams worldwide have come to expect is now available in a compact, low power affordably priced tuner, the AT-500 600 watt antenna tuner.

Covering 160 to 6 Meters with a power rating of up to 600 watts PEP, the AT-500 features a differential tuning capacitor with 2 stators and 1 rotor, a precision ceramic body roller inductor, and a 4:1 ferrite current balun for balanced line feeds.

The AT-500 utilizes only 2 controls to operate for tuning, providing maximum ease of use in a manual tuner. A small-sized roller inductor operates all the way up to 6 m, while a relay-switched add-on inductor allows 160 m operation.

Also included is Pastar's Active Peak and Peak Hold dual cross-needle metering as in the popular PM2000A wattmeter and 11ga. .090" thick chem-film treated aluminum metalwork and durable powder coated finish. The AT-1500 is a tuner that will last a lifetime.

LAST EVENT

During the summer June-July 2017, pilot Brian Lloyd commenced his round-the-world flight to commemorate Amelia Earhart’s route eighty years ago in 1937. The two month flight followed Earhart’s historic equatorial route. Royal Communications International, Inc. was honored to support Brian throughout his expedition.

 

“I chose the Micom3T transceiver for my historic recreation of Amelia Earhart's flight due to its robust construction and outstanding reputation for reliability in a harsh environment. While the control head is mounted in the cabin and lives in a more benign environment, the receiver/transmitter unit resides in an unheated and unpressurized avionics bay where the temperature may vary from +45C to -20C and the altitude may top 24,000 feet. In spite of this harsh environment the Micom3T performed well. 

 

But even the best equipment can fail and I did experience an intermittent failure of the receiver/transmitter unit. A single call to Royal Communications had a replacement unit on its way to me on the other side of the world in a day. Clearly the emphasis was to get my communications back up and running reliably as quickly as possible. I am extremely pleased with the level of support I received. The replacement unit operated and continues to operate reliably.

 

I recommend Royal Communications and Micom products without any reservation. They provide excellent service, great support, and reliable products. Thanks Royal!” - Brian Lloyd
