There he goes again. K0UA bragging up his FT-891. I never do that with my top of the line Alinco SR-8T.

Say K0UA. KC4ZGP here.

May I ask which band, mode and antenna do you most often use the FT-891?

The price of one at either DX Engineering or HRO is at $579.00. I'm ready to
buy two.

I am reading this thread with mucho interesto.  I also just purchased an FT 891 and want to mount it in "my wife's" Kia Soul.  It is "my wife's" because she drives it.  However, I get the joy of paying for it.
BTW Kia (Korea) Soul (Seoul) get it? 
So, since the car belongs to the XYL, I may not drill holes.  I do have a roof rack where I can mount.  Any advice?
Thanks

I have used it on all bands 160 thru 6, and all modes except AM which I just use for a small signal to use for energizing and external tuner.

BTW, thank you for the contact in the Sweepstakes a couple of weeks ago.  :-)

Those that say the ATAS 120 is junk have no idea of what they are talking about.   Its a darn good antenna for 857, 817, 891, FT450D in a mobile set up.  I run them exclusively and have no worries.  My sig reports are always very good and I have no problems communicating.

They tune with the internal menu set to ATAS from all of these radios.  No switches, no buttons, no SWR meters, no "listening to the sound to get close", nothing.  Mash the button and it tunes.  If your not versed enough this antenna, then you have no idea how well it really works.  I dumped both tarheels and went to this 2 yrs ago.   A long piece of wire looks like crap, but you can run it as a long wire out of your shack.   How can this be?  It looks like junk.

I bought a 891.
I have been using it in the house for a few weeks. I love it. easy to set up and use.
I use it in the house with an old Drake MN75 tuner into an S9 vertical in my yard.
Works great on CW and SSB.

I want to put it in my Chevy Tahoe.
I got a CB bumper mount antenna that Im going to use with it.
I will just trim the whip to be resonant on 10m.

I think a tuner in the mobile is a waste. Just my opinion.
