Sucess at last....I can hear now!
I traded out my old TS-50 for a Yeasu 857 and Atas 120 in my big rig and just had a horrible time with engine noise.
I tried several different mounts, I spent days running braid, and got a little better but not much.
I finally gave up on the ATAS 120 , bought a 14.95 mfj 20 meter ham stick at HRO and LDG YT-100 tuner. Also added a mix31 toroid choke at the base of the antenna and I can Hear!!!! My noise is very low now....all I used is the noise blanker for some popping from the injectors.
Think I might try a Hustler as I had pretty good luck with them in the past...How-ever at 14.95 I'm pretty happy with this MFJ Stick.
Alan K0BG I have to thanks you for your very helpful web-site. I just wish I found it before I dropped 3 Bills on this POS ATAS 120
Once in a man's life you should have a good dog, a good horse and a good woman.
The trick is to get them all together at the same time.:D
