Sem 35 and antenna tuner set up

Recommended Posts

I have the set, the mounting plate, 24V power from the vehicle. I know my set works as it will transmit to a sem 52 over a short distance and recieves ok. I have an AGAT (antenna tuner) that i would like to mount inline with a vehicle antenna as opposed to using the antenna on the set which uses its own internal tuner.

 

The tuner is menat to be automatic and apparently runs discs inside. I have no idea how to set it up with the radio. don't want to try pot luck either as you can knacker a set by having badly matched antenna.

 

Any ex BAOR experts in german radio kit out there to give me a few pointers or alternatively is there a easy to understand manual available?

 

I did meet a chap at wartime in the vale in the summer who knew his stuff (he had a kubel and a east german comms van) but I lost his details.

 

Hope somebody can help.

cheers,

Hi Steve, I just saw your message, I'm not sure if it was my mate Nick from Herefordshire who posted the original thread, I have'nt spoke to him for a few weeks as he's just recently moved house but I know he has SEM radio kit in his Volvo and a tuner he bought from w&p. I will try and contact him to let him know, many thanks, regards Ian.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the reply. No, no luck at the moment what with the house move and everything. I have since managed to get hold of a SEM antenna. So I need to know how to connect up the AGAT inline. How does one calibrate the AGAT..in other words how does the AGAT know what frequency the radio set is tuned to?

 

If I remember correctly you told me that the discs inside had to be rotated at first use?

I can even get the thing open...!!

the SEM 35 baseplate has a unc connector for the antenna feed so I presume this goes to the AGAT which is then connected to the Antenna?

 

I'm in Leominster so not too far away from you, is there any chance i could swing by and pick yer brains one evening.?

 

We have a radio celebration day coming up in March and would like to have a bit of something going for then so all help appreciated.

cheers,

nick
