i need a new tuner my older than dirt mfj-989c is worn out as its been used to death for years and years. thinking about the mfj-998. dont run much power often anyways just an ameritron 811. my wires are pretty well tuned not over 3:1 anywhere i go. but i do work 160 and 75 lots. sure seems like a good tuner but does anybody have personal experience with it? i hate to sink my money into a piece of crap. mfj stuff ive had always worked out ok but thats just several manual tuners. sure sounds like an ok deal. fully automatic and all with the ameritron and my icom 746. any on hands opinions?
