Has anyone made a comparison of all of the different Screwdriver Antennas on the market?

not all, but several. I use a dk-3 in the pickup (ft-847) and it does well 6-80 meters. usually if I can hear them I can work them, 10 watts
I also have an ATAS 120 on one car and an ATAS 100 on the other car ( ft 857d's in both) and they do well from 440 mhx to 40 meters. also a much easier install. run power to the radio, ground the rig, run coax, ground the shield side of the antenna (both with self tapping sheet metal screws) and screw the atas on the mount. the radio auto tunes the antenna for you

I had a Knott BB-3 and gave it away, didn't like the mount.


I never had one but I do like the mount for the high sierria's
