power genius xl and vertical antenna

Will the power genius be able to handle an all band un-tuned vertical?  My current SO2R config uses a Zero-five vertical.  When using this antenna I must use low power and the 6600M tuner or use the tuner in my amp.  Since I read that there is a tuner coming my guess is the answer to my question is NO.

    Odds are, your guess is correct.  According to the PG-XL User Guide output power maximum SWR allowed is 1:3.  And power output will be reduced when SWR exceeds 1:1.5.

    As for the 4o3A Auto-Tuner, I've yet to see any specs on this device.

    The answer is no. In fact, the tuner designed for the amp has a rather limited range so even with it you will probably have issues with an untuned vertical.
