      The Mobile Antenna Shoot-Outs I've read uniformly put the 'screwdriver'
antennas at the top - surpassed only by single frequency specials built
exlusively for the tests. I've just installed 2 of them on the new ICOM
rolling showroom motor home along with 2 of the ICOM AH-3 whip with auto tuner
set-up and the screwdriver is the better antenna. 

      BTW, the ICOM bus is hitting the road and may be coming to a radio store
near you this summer. It'll be at Dayton, etc. There are over 3 dozen radios
on board and over a dozen antennas mounted on the top.
