    Would you buy an antenna tuner from Amazon?

    I buy a fair amount of electronics stuff from Amazon. Not big items, but
    stuff like BNC-to-binding post adapters and the SMA-BNC adapters for my
    HTs. So, I shouldnt have been surprised when I got an email from them three weeks ago titled, KKmoon ATU-100 DIY Kits The email included link to two ATU-100 antenna tuner kits, several assembled antenna tuners, and three QRP antenna tuner kits. See below.

    I think that the ATU-100 kits look kind of cool. For about $50, you get a
    100 W, automatic tuner kit.

    My question, though, would be how effective and reliable are these antenna tuners? Has anyone purchased and used one of them? If so, perhaps you could
    get in touch with me, and we could do a short review.

    NOTE: A reader has reported that this link no longer works. If you go to Amazon, and search for AT-100 youll find at least one other similiar kit.
