3042 HF Antenna Tuner

LOOP Codan - 3042 HF Antenna Tuner

The 3042 is a low profile, 125 W HF antenna tuning unit designed to deliver high performance and reliability in the world’s harshest environments.

It provides high speed and efficient tuning of short whip antennas across the full operational HF band. With a 125 W RF power handling capability, the 3042 can be used for voice and data operation over the full 2 to 30 MHz frequency band.  The tuner has an unlimited tune from memory capacity, and using a state-of-the-art tuning algorithm, new frequencies are tuned in typically less than one second.
