In AFCAD, bring up Lists-Frequencies (I think, but it's something like that anyway.) Do you see ATIS there? If not, you need to add it. You can use the same frequency that the main overlay uses.Also, are these downloaded overlays or your own? If they're downloads, you might want to contact the author and see if he/she has similar problems.

That's it, Tom. I went to my own home-brewed PHNL overlay (for the floatplane runways out in the bay) and sure enough, there was no ATIS. So I tried switching the ATIS name to the overlay name, 2HNL, and when I reloaded everything it showed ATIS.
