• HF-AUTO Palstar, automatic antenna tuner
The 1800-watt Palstar HF-AUTO Automatic HF-AUTO Antenna Calibrators for HF Amateur Radio upgrade to the next level and offer automatic tuning with 1,800 watts of power. Originally rated at 1500 watts, Palstar has increased the rating to reflect the true capacity of their tuner.

Like all Palstar products, the HF-AUTO Automatic Antenna Calibrator has been designed according to the Palstar tradition for high quality products. The auto-calibrator has been around for years, but most of them use slap relays and localized components, so the match is still slightly out of sync. Palstar has reinvented the auto-tuner with quiet and continuously variable components for perfect match every time. They have crowned this success with a unit capable of tuning only 2 watts of power, but which can handle up to 1,800 watts.
