The LDG IT-100 is an automatic tuner intended for use with modern Icom transceivers. It works with any Icom transceiver that supports an AH-3 or AH-4 Icom tuner; apartial list of compatible units includes: IC-706, 703, 718, 7000, 7100, 7200, 7300, 7410, 746, 756, 7600, 7610. The interface cable is included. The IT-100 connects to the radio via its Tuner jack to control the tuning cycle; the transceiver's Tune button controls the tuner. The Tuner jack also powers the tuner, so it requires no external power supply.

Like all LDG tuners the IT-100 operates automatically, beginning a tuning cycle when the user presses the tune Button the radio or tuner.
