I just purchased an FT100 and ATAS active antenna system.  It worked so well that My XYL wanted an ATAS also.  I guess she did not find the beauty in the Hustler with tri-band adapter.  She has an IC706MKII so we purchases an up/down adapter from Ancomm and placed it between the rig and the antenna.  They also sent her a 706 Tune control which is activated by the rigs tune button.  So the whole thing works by pressing tune and throwing the toggle switch on the Ancomm box up or down while watching the SWR meter on the 706 until a desired SWR is achieved. Then full power on the 706 can be achieved.  I recommend for 706 users.  The FT100 does better with noise than the 706 but it can be done.

I am trying to decide what I want to do more, either way I would like the ATAS-100, it's just the rig that
I can't make up my mind on.  It seems, though, from your post that it is easiest to use the ATAS with the FT-100 (D).  Is this what you would recommend for an easy to use, no nonsense mobile installation?

Thanks,
