Author Topic: ATAS on 80m  (Read 419 times)

Has anyone tried to put the ATAS on 75/80m?  I seem to recall seeing some discussions somewhere about using a longer whip but don't remember where, nor did I see how it all turned out.  I'd like to know if anyone has had any success with this?

Thanks,
Cy, WT3F

I've not heard of it, but I can say this. If it is proportionally lossy on 75 as it is on 40, you'd be lucky to get 1/2 of a watt radiated. You'll make a few contacts, but not many.

Without mods to the radio, it will not "tune" in that band.  the indicator shows "atas" not "ATAS" when you are in a band that it can tune.  This indicates that the antenna tuning circuit will not work in that band.
