The Alpha Delta PathFinder provides continuous coverage tuning from 1.8 thru 30 MHz plus 6 meters with digital readout. As a result, it is ideal for amateur radio. It runs under microprocessor control with an average tuning time of 3 to 4 seconds automatically. The digital readout is a precision multi-function bar graph/numerical display that simultaneously reads RF watts (5 thru 200 watts), peak and average, VSWR and all tuner functions. The digital meter provides 5% accuracy plus 1 digit of any reading, not just full scale. Front panel pushbutton switched outputs for coax, long wire or balanced line antennas--using a custom designed built-in balun. Select between 2 coax or 1 coax and 1 long wire/balanced type antenna.
10:1 SWR tuning range on HF and 3:1 on 6 meters. Much wider than typical built-in transceiver tuners. Will match coax outputs from 6 thru 800 ohms and long wire/balanced outputs from 24 thru 3200 ohms (HF). Will match a wide variety of antennas.
200 watt power rating on HF and 100 watts on 6 meters with 50% duty cycle.
Requires 12 VDC at 1 AMP
In addition to the digital readout, audio beep responses for SWR and various functions are provided for the visually impaired.
The Alpha Delta PathFinder rear panel provides input for 2 coax and 1 long wire/balanced type antenna. It also has a heavy ground terminal and 12VDC input jack.
