    Playing with the end fire array and forced current feed method of phasing is fun.
    The moxon will have better results most likely

    I've made a Moxon for uhf. the concept is a folded dipole with a folded reflector. Can't think of how you would use that vertically as a mobile antenna. No doubt it was a heck of alot easier to tune then a standard dipole without a balun.
    BTW tons of Moxon calculators on the internet.

    No moxon on a mobile. I have a stealth location i just want to mess around with both styles of antenns on a metal roof.

    In that case, MMM has a DDRR antenna on his mobile (it looked like a military issued suburban or a one that was painted in camo colors). I remember seeing it on youtube. Food for thought. if I find the video I'll post it on this thread in the future.
