The First SO2R Tuner to Hit the Waves

Introducing the Tuner Genius XL. The first SO2R Tuner in the amateur market. Also, soon to be available in a 1×3 version. The Tuner Genius XL is a full frequency coverage tuner from 1.8 MHz to 54 MHz with the ability to tune up to 10:1 SWR.

With the ability to handle up to 2000W ICAS of power, the Tuner Genius XL is built to high quality “broadcast industry” commercial standards.

Ease of Operation

All Tuner Genius XL functions can be controlled either from the front panel of the tuner or using a Windows computer software application. This allows the Tuner Genius XL to be placed off your desktop if needed. High precision “peak responding” RF power and SWR meter displays are also provided, therefore, you no longer need a separate Watt/SWR meter device in your shack.

Fully Integrated

The Tuner Genius XL is fully integrated with the Power Genius XL RF amplifier and ALL FLEX-6000 series HF transceivers. All FlexRadio products utilize a standard LAN communications protocol and with the published API you can write your own applications for your tuner setup. Though you can use your Tuner Genius XL with any modern HF radio on the market today, when used in conjunction with a Power Genius XL and a FLEX-6600 or FLEX-6700 transceiver, you gain full SO2R (single operator, 2 radio) operation for your station including support for multiFLEX™ operation. Frustration-free contesting goes hand-in-hand with reduced station costs and ease of set-up.
