Amateur Radio

Are you talking about a CB radio or a Ham radio? Both have to have a good antenna ground wire to the frame of the vehicle.

a screwdriver would work great on a fiberglass MH. IVE GOT ONE . I HAVE TO ELEVATE IT FOR MY CLASSIC . the swr is too high as the unit reflects a bunch back into the antenna.
wb4eze is my call lol

also you could mount this antenna permanent to your rear bumper. your thinking that you would have to remove, dont have to. after it warms up outside i will take a picture of mine, so you will know what one look like.

A ham pulled into the camp ground with a huge monster motorhome. He used a vertical mounted on a tripod sitting on the ground. He said he uses 40 M most of the time and works great.

Of course the antennae broke down for storage.

screwdriver antenna

A look on the web revealed a ham selling the screwdriver at this web site. http://www.qth.com/N7LYY/

This is the first I have heard of the antenna but, it does sound good.
