Simple Ham Radio Antennas--How to Install Yaesu ATAS 120A Antenna with FT-857 Ham Radio. Post #516.


If you have trouble viewing this article, please insert this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/Hqx3vZ8k7JQ.  Excellent installation video that shows how David Mercado installed a Yaesu ATAS 120A screwdriver antenna with a Comet HD-5M (RS-840) antenna mount on his 2011 Nissan Xterra.  David's rig is a Yaesu FT-857 multiband transceiver.  Nice installation job.  I'm glad David mentioned the importance of grounding the antenna system.  That process can be a bit tricky in modern vehicles with little metal to use as a ground plane.
