• AT-500 Palstar, manual antenna tuner 600 W
Covering the 160 to 6 meter amateur radio bands, the AT-500 calibrators use only two controls for tuning, offering maximum ease of use and a more compact manual tuner. These calibrators are equipped with a Vernier Differential Differential Differential Adjustment Stator Capacitor and a smaller precision ceramic body with a crank armature inductor. This combination allows operation over 6 meters, while an additional inductor relay allows a setting of 160 meters. Like the large calibrators, the AT-500 offers the convenience of a 6-position mode switch for multiple antenna feed lines and an external dummy load.

The AT-500 calibrators also feature Palstar's Peak and Active Peak Hold cross-meter measurement system in our popular PM2000A power meter. They are made with a 11 ga. (0.090 "thick) iridite-treated aluminum hardware and durable powder-coated finish on the front panel and top cover.

The Palstar AT-500 calibrators are ideal as an entry-level selection, if you want to buy a high quality product made in America.
