Just let the init finish takes about a minute the antenna and the radio need to talk to each other once that's done it will tune away

If you get that ATAS120A working, I find it works best to "park" on 50MHz and select OFF on the menu before removing it. Then, when putting it back on, I select HF/50 and it goes through INIT in a few minutes. Otherwise, the ATAS120A isn't recognized and I have to fiddle a lot before it gets working again.

HI ho all... I havn't been on in a while.  the ATAS 120 is a modest antenn and works pretty good on 440, 2m 6m and 10-17m.  it works poorly on 20-30 and 40. but it does tune there.  an old disabled fart  like me likes the fact that it wors well and fits in the garage, with out me getting out of the car.. so yes it works poorly, but it does work !

Alan,

what port on the back of the radio is your 120A connected to in order to get 2M/440?


Thanks!

If he is using it for HF and VHF, he would need a duplexer. 2 & 70cms is on a separate port to HF & 6

Having owned the FT-857D and ATAS-120 for a decade, I can say that they are decent performers.   That being said, proper bonding is CRUCIAL.  Most of my contacts using this combination have resulted in excellent reports, often with a comment about how well it's working for a mobile.   I change bands while mobile and stationary, and haven't had any real problems to gripe about, except the one that apparently will come to haunt every FT-857 owner at one point or another - the display has vertical segments that are failing to the point where I cannot read the display.  About to send it in to Yaesu for the $250 repair.
