Yaesu FT-817 Integration to the Elecraft T1 Tuner

The proper way to tidy up the cables between the FT-817 and the T1 tuner. Note the power cord strain relief  as per OH2KJ. I am using and Anderson pole on mine as the power connector jack.

The ground screw is a M3-6mm one

817 and t1

 

World’s Smallest Stand-Alone ATU!
The Elecraft T1 is the only automatic antenna tuner that’s sized to match today’s small QRP rigs. It’s one-fourth the size of most other compact ATUs. And at just 5 ounces, the T1 is the ideal backpacking accessory.

Use with any Low-Power Transceiver
The T1 can be used with any 0.5-W to 20-W transceiver covering bands in the 160-6 m range. This includes kits, home-built rigs, and commercial transceivers such as the FT-817, IC703, Ten-Tec Argonaut, SG2020, etc.

Quick, Convenient, and Accurate
The T1’s 7-inductor, 7-capacitor L-network provides a wide matching range, and its re-tune time from memory is just 1 to 2 seconds. Equally important, the T1 always tries to achieve a 1.0:1 SWR—it doesn’t stop at 1.5:1 or 2.0:1 like some tuners. You won’t even need to change modes to tune. You can use SSB voice or a keyer as well as a constant carrier (AM, FM, CW, etc.).

FT-817 Remote-Control Option
For even greater convenience, we offer a “smart” remote control adapter for use with the Yaesu FT-817 . On any band change, the adapter’s micro controller sends band data to the T1, which quickly recalls the appropriate network settings. Imagine instant QSY without the need to transmit-less QRM, less hassle!
