Customer Reviews for the ATR-30.

From: Luther W. Lipfird NC4MI
I love this tuner. I had a Dentron Super Tuner that was replaced with the ATR-30. It did a good job, but it had a problem tuning my Force 12 C-4. It would get the SWR close to 1.2 to 1 but could never get close enough for me. After I got the ATR-30 hooked up. I set the presets to what was in the Manual and they were very close to my end result. It tuned each one of the bands flat 1.1 to 1. Thank you a fantastic Tuner.

It's true. It will handle the AL-82 with room to spare. Over the last 35 years, I've had various tuners. This is a really good high power tuner. The roller inductor is made from flat stock that is wound into a coil. When I went and visited MFJ & Ameritron, I had seen an ATR-30 in the process of being built. It was the idea of the wide edge wound stock with a very good and solid contact between the roller and the inductor that sold me. The peak meter is very nice. I really like the back-lit meter. It appears to now have the LED illumination. Very pleasant and bright. The older I get the more light I need to see. The turns counter is driven from one direct drive gear on the crank directly to the counter. Tuning is a snap. It is always "on the numbers" on band changes. I highly recommend making a chart for each antenna for each 100 KHz of each band. You will be very thankful for the chart. It saves a lot of time "hunting" for the right match. I bought it to mate up with my new Ameritron AL-82. They look good together. I'm on my fifth Ameritron-manufactured amplifier. I have been slowly upgrading to where I am now. No regrets. Other than I wish I had enough money for the AL-1500. Maybe later. If you have any questions, please email me at n5vu at yahoo dot com. 73 & good DX! Marcel

Owned my ATR-30 for about 4 years and it's one of the best investments I've ever made. I have auto tuners but never use them.
I use an antenna analyzer on a switch box to allow me to tune any frequency within about 10 seconds and can almost always get down to 1:0 on any freq. This tuner is amazing!

... the atr-30 is a great tuner and will handle anything legal that you may want to use. It is easy to work with and the meters are easy to set up and read, whether you prefer average or peak readings. Switching between the antenna options is quick and reliable with a satisfying "thump" heard as the switch locks in, positively and solidly. I am completely satisfied with my ATR-30 tuner ......and suspect it will probably tune anything from a empty tuna fish can to a bed spring..... nq3c ...

From: Al Winney VE7CM
I acquired my ATR-30 just recently and it was a used one. I was a little sceptical being a used tuner, but after plotting all the bands and frequencies I use I was pleasantly surprised the say the least. This tuner handles my Alpha 86 at 1.5 kilowatts and higher with no issues at all. It will tune my 80 metre loop to every band right up to 10 metre. I used my MFJ 269 analyzer to get a sense of how the tuner would react and it was right on each time. I would put this tuner in top place without hesitation. I replaced the burnt out bulbs with LEDS and what a difference this made I can actually see the inductor numbers now.
