Not a bad price (new about $175) for a neat little tuner. I have one of these, BTW, ideal for portable and QRP since it can run on batteries without much work.

LDG Z11-Pro Autotuner. HAM radio - $120 (Broomfield)

Meet the Z-11ProII, everything you always wanted in a small, portable tuner designed from the ground up for battery operation. Only 5" x 7.5" x 1.5", and weighing only 18 ounces, it handles 0.1 to 125 watts, making it ideal for both QRP and standard 100 watt transceivers from 160 - 6 meters.

The Z-11ProII uses LDG’s state-of-the-art processor-controlled Switched-L tuning network. It will match dipoles, verticals, inverted-Vs or virtually any coax-fed antenna. With an optional LDG balun, it will also match longwires or antennas fed with ladder-line.

The Z-11ProII has 2,000 memories automatically storing tuning configurations for each frequency and band as you use them. Frequency sensing circuitry lets the Z-11Pro “know” your operating band and frequency. Whenever you transmit on or near a frequency you’ve used before, the Z-11ProII retunes from memory almost instantly. Full auto mode tunes with SSB. Just speak into the mic and it tunes! Memories are retained indefinitely.

Rugged and easy-to-read LEDs indicate SWR and status. The Z-11ProII uses latching relays which retain the tuned configuration even when powered down; current draw when not tuning is effectively zero.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
