TEN-TEC is proud to announce that we are the exclusive distributor in the US for YouKits brand products.
The first product we are introducing from YouKits is the FG-01 a 1 to 60 MHZ Antenna Analyzer. This is not a kit but a fully assembled unit ready for use. The FG-01 utilizes the latest in SMT technology to provide a compact unit with lots of value.
This antenna analyzer is the smallest (measures less than 4“ tall) and easiest antenna analyzer to use on the market today. It has a color display that graphically shows you the SWR and Impedance of the antenna under test. This unit is right at home being carried to the top of the tower or on the bench in your shack.
The FG-01 with its color graphical display allows you to dial in the frequency you wish to operate on and immediately read the SWR and Impedance of the antenna at that frequency. The FG-01 also allows you to easily adjust the frequency to determine the desired SWR points of the antenna. For instance if you wanted to know the 2:1 limits of your antenna you would just change the frequency using the large knob to move the graph to the 2:1 point on the center of the display and read the frequency.
No more guessing where the low SWR point is on your antenna. No more guessing about you antenna characteristics, you just read the SWR and Impedance on the color graphic display or look at the curves to fully understand the characteristics of your antenna.
The FG-01 comes with a wall mounted Lithium battery charger. We suggest you order the optional Lithium battery pack R9411 (18650). The charger provided with the FG-01 will charge the R9411 (18650) Lithium battery. With no battery you can use a quality regulated power supply such as the TEN-TEC model R4005. Batteries are not included for the battery case shipped with the FG-01.
This unit is sold exclusively in the US by TEN-TEC and has a one-year replacement warranty. This unit is not manufactured by TEN-TEC therefore the non TEN-TEC manufactured return policy applies.
Note: The knob on some of the later model units may be chrome or silver instead of black.
R9411 Battery Pack: Internal Lithium power source and accessory for the Antenna Analyzer listed above
WARNING: Do not install alkaline batteries in the holder provided. Only Lithium Ion model 14500 batteries should be used in the holder provided.

Technology has come a long way since 1956 as KN1APA when I tried an antenna and if it did not work well I did not know why and then tried another one.
This got my PAR EndFed adjusted accurately and quickly.
I made one change to the unit. Since it is heavy, small and easy to drop I attached a couple of foam rubber strips to the side to provide a better grip.

I purchased an FG-01 at Dayton and couldn't be more pleased. It is small, accurate and the features are amazing. I have owned several MFJ Analyzers and this one is far superior. Get one, you'll be happy you did

I ordered one of these at Dayton 2012 and just got around to trying it out yesterday. Talk about an easy device to operate right out of the box without needing to read the manual :) It appears to be a strong case and has quality feeling controls. The fit & finish is perfect. Looks like my '259B will be sitting on the shelf for now on :)

I recently purchased one of these analyzers to help in tuning a 4-band trapped vertical antenna. I figured this would take a lot of back and forth to get tuned up. Using this analyzer really helped and I mean alot! It is very easy to use right out of the box, and as I had purchased the battery pack, which arrived charged, I was able to get to work on my antenna very quickly. Although not manufactured by Ten Tec, it is a very good complementary item for their standard line. With the Ten Tec gear I have I find that it is not all the buttons nor really what is inside but how well it works and keeps working. Very satisfied, would recommend this tool.

I know that Ten-Tec doesn't manufacture this antenna analyzer, but they hit a home run with it! I've used my trusty old MFJ-259B for years and it worked well. My main gripe with the MFJ-259B was that if you needed to test an antenna in the yard without an extension cord, the battery life was quite short. The FG-01 is by far easier to use and the battery life is much better than the MFJ-259B. You can climb a tower to tune the antenna with it in your shirt pocket. It is small, neat and compact.

I have been a HAM for over 30 years and had many analyzers, this is by far the best. Easy to use and all the info you need for tuning. Beats everything hands down...

I had this unit connected to my antennas within 15 min of taking it out of the box!
The display gave me instant views where my antennas were centered and the impedance at resonance. Adjusting my antennas will be very fast using the real time display. The one control setup is very intuitive almost eliminating the need for the instructions. Everything you need to see is on the one screen and easy to find. The enclosure is very strong and "small". It fits in the palm of your hand.
I found very few negative aspects and all do not hinder the functionality. The finish on my unit has a minor blemish. The internal battery mounting could be better, but works fine. The charger is the best noise generator in my house. Like I said, no problems with functionality.
If you like to tinker with antennas and need to see VSWR and Z at the same time for a specific frequency this is for you.
I can see using this to pre-tune my screwdriver antenna in the mobile. Tuning vertical and dipole is now easy to do. Multi-band antennas can be plotted in one sweep and you can zero in on any resonance point you need to look at.
Lots of potential in a very small package. This is a great value for the price!
