ONLY $100 for this tuner!!!
Why is this so cheap?
There must be a story… and there is..

4 weeks ago I purchased this tuner from a Calgary ham, the original ad (on Hamshack.ca) stated:

Picked up from Visually Impaired Ham locally and used for 2 years with no issues.
Only upgraded to the 945E so I could do 6m mobile with it.
Solid accurate tuner … open to reasonable offers.
MFJ Deluxe Versa Tuner II Model 949D 10-160m 300W Hi-Low settings Very large Cross needle display with ……..

Sadly it had 2 faults
1 – the dummy load no longer worked as the wire to the dummy had been rerouted to the wireantenna terminal – why I do not know. I fixed that problem quickly

2 – the swr meter would read the forward power correctly, but did not show reflected power correctly… in other words, the reflected power needle did not provide an even-close-to-accuratre indication (compared to my Daiwa 801 and the swr meter on both an Icom 7300 and a Kenwood TS590SG).
There appears to be a cracked very small component, but even with that it tunes properly!

Now it is entirely possible / plausible that the vendor never tried the dummy load and did not pay attention to the reflected swr. It may just have been an over-site on his part.
So he gets the benefit of the doubt.

Sadly the seller does not seem to be interested in rectifying the problem, so I am selling this unit for $100 plus $25 shipping, in the condition as described above, in other words, the reflected power is not correctly shown on the meter.
