This will place nice clean, unpitted coil on the end when tuned to the higher freqs, and likely on the lower ones the roller will never get to the pitted end. Here the roller has been reversed with nice clean end of the coil to the left. If you don’t, you stand a good chance of pitting one like this. Nanual bought the unit with the band switch out from a local ham.
I also remember we were running way above heathkkit legal limit and in AM too, so I decided this was my best choice. In a matter of 6 months, have worked many countries and all states. I think you will enjoy the process. I suspect after the lighting mod is done, the tuner will appear to look like another rig or amplifier sitting in the shack.
I wanted something robust, and functional, and when I saw one of these on eBay, I remembered fixing one of these that arced from the cap heathkt the balun, and spit some fire at me.
Geathkit use it for m, and it will load up everything on these bands for me. Always adjust a manual tuner at low power, especially on the higher frequencies.
Heathkit SA A Deluxe Antenna Tuner (+ Parts + Schem.) (manual)
This tuner is exceptionally well designed, and uses surprisingly high quality components. However, there is a repair, it just takes a little work.
As with hethkit good piece of gear, maint. I love both those tuners, but in my opinion the A is the clear winner. As it is a kit, the quality of construction may vary.
Higher power will pit the roller coil, same as “hot switching”. These units are just superbly laid out, top quality materials used and should last for years. It’s not difficult, and it is very rewarding. Never interfaced with an antenna it couldn’t handle.
REBUILDING HEATH TUNERS
The Heathkit tuner resembles amplifier equipment in terms of physical size. It is too easy to forget where parts go or are connected. It replaced my Dentron MTA about two years ago and has never let me down.
But after as-2060a the round Heathkit knob, I find it actually provides for a very smooth precision feel and operation similar to a VFO knob. It had to be epoxied back in before the project continued. Take the time to distinguish between the quality of a device versus the condition you happen to find it in.
A battleship example of a tuner. It has a big screen, and the one working channel is all I need, and it sure works great. My Subscriptions Subscriptions Help. This is close to being the ultimate tuner. Hope this helps someone and I can honestly say the same for this as I said on manul sb,your not getting mine.
I took the parts from two s and used the best parts to make one really good one. Therefore, the lack of any electronic circuit boards inside makes the Heathkit more bullet proof in my estimation. Unless you take this precaution it is too easy to lose small parts and in old gear, there are NO replacements. Then I put on some beautiful shiny knobs and placed this puppy in service.
Heath kit SA-2060A Manual
This refurbished tuner is now in my shack and is doing a bang-up job of tuning both my beam and my full-wave loop. I think I made a wise decision, and s-2060a good purchase.
I had the MFJs legal limit tuners arc barefoot using an old Yeasu that put out about watts using sweep tubes.
