Hello All, Got a question for all the Icom 7300 or LDG IT-100 owners out there. I just recently got the Icom 7300 added to my radio shack. I was using the Elecraft KX3 prior just using low wattage. The antenna I have currently is a G5RV up about 40ft high in an inverted v fashion. I have a "ugly balun" at the feedpoint about 8 turns at 9 inches in diameter using RG8X. My Elecraft KX3's internal antenna tuner could tune 80m thru 10m on the antenna no problem. When I try the Icom antenna tuner, it can only tune the 40m band. I began comparing the two internal antenna tuners together and I instantly found the problem. Icom's antenna tuner only tunes a 3:1 SWR while the Elecraft's can handle a 10:1. I did a quick experiment with the Icom and placed it into "Emergency Mode" which drops the wattage to 50W and also allows the antenna tuner to tune out a 10:1 SWR. I was still only able to tune the 40m band with the radio in "Emergency Mode." I obviously need some sort of external tuner to handle this SWR mismatch between the Icom and the G5RV. My concern is if I buy a LDG tuner, the manual states that it handles a 10:1 mismatch. According to my "Emergency Mode" test, it would appear that the SWR is slightly higher than 10:1. Any LDG owners out there with a similar problem? I am not opposed to using a manual tuner either if somebody has a good recommendation for the money.
