The American made AT5K-HP is a unique high-power tuner in the American Ham tradition. The AT5K tuner was nick-named the "Rock Crusher" and is one of the tuners of choice among Hams who demand the best and most robust antenna tuner on the market.
The AT5K-HP features a 6 position high power ceramic antenna selector switch.
Inside the AT5K-HP you'll find massive custom large-plate (600 pF) variable capacitors rated at 6 kV. This high capacitance means unsurpassed performance on 160 Meters, while specially designed non-metallic end plates allow a minimum capacitance of only 20 pF for 6 Meter tuning, unusually low for a variable capacitor this large. Equally massive is the 28 µH, 10 Amp, 7 kV, Ceramic-body inductor, which is wound with 10 Ga. plated copper wire with silver-plated wheel shaft and contact wheel.
Add 11 Ga. (.090" thick) gold iridite-treated aluminum metalwork and durable powder coated finish on the front panel and top cover, and you have the AT5K-HP, Palstar's top of the line premium quality antenna tuner.
