I am new to ham radio and looking to buy a HF radio. I came accross these two and was wondering which would be better. They are both priced about the same, but the Yaesu offered a antenna that has a built-in tuner. I was planning on buying the Icom and using a couple of ham sticks and automatic tuner. Has anyone used one of the Yaesu antennas, part # ATAS-120 before and how well did it work? I have to be honest, the Yaesu looks good, if the antenna performs well. Thanks for any comments.
