    I have a 991a and an at-100proII autotuner. I was trying to tune the radio last night using the tuner and it seemed like it was working but now the tuner won't tune at all and when I try and transmit the red transmit icon just blinks and doesn't transmit.

    Its a new radio and tuner so I really hope I didn't screw them up. Any help is would be very much appreciated.

    Doesn't the FT- 991A have a built-in antenna tuner? Could you have inadvertently either turned it on or off while doing the 'tune' function on the rig?

    the 991 does have an internal tuner

    what bands are you trying ?

    what antenna ?

    what coax ?

    does the 991 indicate TX ?

    It does have a built in tuner but I needed something that could match my multiband antenna better.

    It seems like its working now...All I did was press func>tune a couple times and then when I keyed down it worked!
