Hi: Worldradio used to publish a book, as best I remember by Don Johnson, W6AAQ, with fairly detailed plans for a screwdriver antennas. I don't know if they still carry it, but it's worth a try. If they don't I have seen several copies in piles of old magazines at hamfests.

If you dont find what you need using the above info you might write Don Johnson W6AAQ direct ,he has (or had )a 17 page manuscript available on all the info needed to build a screwdriver antenna.the cost was less than $10.

As above, and by the way, Mr. Johnson was pretty much "the guy" who pioneered this concept, at least as relating to using a "screwdriver motor" for tuning.

I have the "complete" plans on how to build W6AAQ's DK3 Screwdriver antenna.
The plans are very detailed and is easy to build.  If you still need plans let me know
 and can send a copy to you.
 email me at  wd9acq@qsl.net
