Hi, I´m about to buy second hand Furuno FS 1502, nobody has been able to tell me wether is does have a built in antenna tuner or not, also, the frequencies it really covers in TX. If you can help me that´d be great. regards from Chilean Patagonia.... Wally

Wally,

No it does not have an internal antenna tuner. I presently own one and purchased it used. It covers all the marine bands. For more info on marine bands, do a search on the internet.

857d does not display tunr icon when set up for atu operation


In the extended menu, double check the "tuner mode". Sometimes the 857 requires a "factory reset" (also in the extended menus) to get it working with external antenna tuners.

Furuno at 1500 atu


This works for the Furuno 1501-Make sure your connections are the same:#1 provide 15V & gnd to tuner(12V works) #2 connect coax between tuner & Xmtr / antenna to tuner #3 set radio to transmit CW carrier @ no more than 10W #4 momentarily short tune to gnd, this will initiate tune process. Watch SWR meter/ listen for tuner to complete, stop 10W carrier & return radio to normal status. I use mine remotely mounted with a 3 wire control cord & a box with a push button momentary switch back at the radio. Connections are 12V & gnd from the power supply to tuner, tune back to control box where the button shorts it to ground to tune.

Week transmission it only 25watt


Did you calibrate the power meter? You may be putting out 100w.

I thought the 1530 was a 150 watt radio...

If your antenna connections are corroded, loose, or whatever ... that will show up in yoyr standing wave ratio & cut your power way down...

Hope this helps..

Oh, yeah ... you didn't use an ... amp, did you?

Bands covered by Furuno FS-1502


It doesn't appear to cover the ham bands, only maritime. This radio is also not type approved for operation on ham bands either.

You can find the freq. range in the manual at the link below:

Furuno 1552


Howdy John;

You might try going online to Ham radio outlet, they carry just about everything for ham radio. your telex kit may not be made any longer but you might be able to use a Terminal Node Controller in its place. Kantronics makes one of the best TNC's around.
