I used to do a lot of HF mobile. Did mostly 80 and 40 meters. Never had VHF/UHF till only several years ago, but lots of that too. I think I've tried most mobile antennas, ranging from Kenwood's to T.Bugcatchers to screwdrivers. The screwdriver was the easiest to "tune", the Bug- catcher the hardest. Radios were mostly Kenwood, I like them (built-in tuner!). Those built-in tuners are very handy thingies!
