I just looked at the tuner, but I can't tell if the transceiver interface will work with the older rig. Other than that, the specs indicate that this tuner will only handle a 3:1 SWR. I think I would look for a better external tuner, possibly from LDG.

I would look at the LDG tuner,has alot better tuning range than the Yeasu tuner will have ,and you will be able to put the LDG tuner behind any hf/50mhz radio

I have been looking at the LDG auto tuners for a while ....When I do buy a tuner the AT 200 Pro 2 has my attention...I see now they have a 600 watt tuner... even more to look at
