3046 HF Antenna Tuner

LOOP Codan - 3046 HF Antenna Tuner

The 3046 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 and long whip antennas across the full operational HF band. With a 125 W RF power handling capability, the 3046 can be used for voice (including Frequency Hopping) 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.
