I am partial to the High Sierra antennas, the full size models, especially if you want to work 80m. The littles one will work, but like all antennas, on 80m bigger is better.

I have an 1800Pro on my Windstar and routinely work all up and down the Eastern coast and the deep south on the MARS frequencies adjacent to 80m from the Baltimore area.

You DO want to read Alan's web site, www.k0bg.com. This is one of the best sites for do's and don'ts on mobile HF.

I love this antenna for quality and price...works better than the high dollar ones (I learned the hard way). Requires you to build your own switch and counter, but still less than half the cost of the others. Take a close look!

I second WW5AA's comment on the DK3. Better hurry though because I just talked to Doug there and he mentioned that stock is low and not sure when the next batch will be coming from Don Johnson W6AAQ, the mobileering expert who invented the screwdriver antenna back in 1991.
