I would like to get a set of plans online for a Screw Driver Antenna.
I have searched the internet and I'm not coming up with anything detailied.
There are tons of places to buy them.

Does anyone know of a site that has detailied plans on how to build one?

Thanks

Bob

Since no one has answered, I'll give you my two cents worth ...

For what it will cost you in materials, skill, machining, and all the rest necessary to make a _reliable_ motorized antenna (nobody uses screwdriver motors any more) you can buy one of the proven brands already assembled.

I don't particularly care for the Tarheel, or the ones they manufacture for MFJ, but I'd take one of them over any homebrewed antenna any day.
