RV HF antennas, whats the best?
« on: July 17, 2013, 03:55:31 AM »

I'm in the process of installing a station in my 5th wheel RV. Now I know that opinions are just like noses...everybody has one, but I'm interested in finding out what you all think is best. I'm looking at the Shakespeare Marine SSB fiberglass antenna or a TarHeal screwdriver, but I'm open for other suggestions.

Of the two choices you give, I'd pick the screwdriver antenna.  It's at least tunable, that 'marine' antenna isn't.
