LDG Z11 Pro Auto Tuner.

Post by daxi on Wed Apr 21, 2010 3:39 am


Well we did it, we replaced the LDG Z100 that went pop, last year. The new auto AMU is the updated Z100, the Z11 Pro & first impressions are very good.
The Z100 was an amazing little AMU, but first impressions of the Z11 are that it is even better.
It tuned our CP6 on every band in seconds, something the Z100 could not do across the 80 meter band unless we used a MFJ auto AMU expander.

Same here, I had the Z11 and now have the same Z11 Pro and indeed it is much better for me also, tunes the wires which was hit and miss and a friend of mine has tuned his garden fence for 40m on one of these and works a real treat also

I take it you have one of the LDG baluns as well if you are tuning long wires. Or do yoy do the same as us & run wires via a coax fed un/un?

I am told that the baluns are very good & well worth the few pounds they cost.
