Hi folks. I'm planning on retiring in 3 years and wandering around for a while in an RV. I joined the forum to do a little homework on antennas and rv-ing in general. Want to do all bands and "most" modes. 73....de....Fred. N9TA

There is a wealth of experience here, just ask.

I am still trying different antennas at home and on the RV, so im not fixed on what to use yet.

10 to 160? I use a scewdriver antenna but it does not do 160 the bigger ones will do 160 but I would think a capacitive hat would really be needed on the whip to be effective on 160.
