    I'm actually trying to set the antenna up in my attic with a 4'x8' rabbit wire ground plane (per Tarheel), but I figure people reading the mobile forum might be the place to find people with more experience.

    The setup is a Yaesu 991A. The first thing I found out is that Menu item 28 must be set to 28 (232C), not the default of GPS1.

    I can tune the antenna manually with the help of an antenna analyzer even though it is extremely finicky. But when I try and use the tuner (all other menu options per the manual) all it does is start the tune cycle then signal P and go into park mode.

    All the cables are choked per Tarheel or the tuner instructions. I'm just out of ideas and if anybody has any to offer I will gladly entertain them.
