I have an Atlas mobile that I thought was a 210X, but now I'm not sure.  On the band switch it has the following bands:  3.7, 7, 14, 21.1, 28.5.  It spans 350kHz on the VFO; not 500kHz. The name plate below the S-meter is missing.  

When I turn the VFO all the way past 350kHz, I can barely see 210E on the dial.  Is this the model number?  I did a search and didn't see anything on an Atlas 210E. Is this an export model or something?  

Does anyone know what this is?  It looks just like the 210-215X.

Thanks for any info.

Hello Don

Atlas 210X and 215X are the same radio
BUT
the 210X is 80 - 10 meters
the 215X is 160 - 15 meters

otherwise the same basic radio

in it's day it was the " HOT " mobile / portable rig
for lots of hams it was the first all solid state
rig they ever owned

still have a soft spot in my heart for the radio

oh
by the way
you really do not want to turn the
main tuning knob / dial to end / stop

yours truly
mac

ps late night, this winter
stop by 3875
would love to hear you radio on the air

I too have a fond memory of my Atlas 210X- ran it mobile back through the 80's with excellent results. The radio was years ahead of its time, being modular solid state before the concept was adopted into other radios. I had a remote frequency display (fairly rare but helpful when mobile) and the power supply/base unit. The noise blanker is always subject to question. As I recall, the blanker did not actually work until there was a signal received- then it kicked in to be quite effective. But that left tuning around a bit noisy and led people to assume it wasn't working. I never had any problem with the rig.

I believe the 210 tunes 350Khz (from 3.7-4.0 Mhz) and the 210X tunes 500Khz (3.5-4.0 Mhz).  It appears that you have a 210 (not X).  The bandswitch on my 210X says 3.5 instead of 3.7.
