    I had a BB3 Screwdriver antenna mounted the same way on my Chev truck for a short while. I moved it after I got my Smacked All Stop Lights award!
    I later mounted it in the rear corner of the bed down low on the drivers side.
    I also trimmed a Fiberglas whip down so it would cover from about 28.5 down through the 75 meter phone band okay. Without trimming it, it was too long with the screwdriver portion completely lowered for 10 meters and I don't care about 80 CW when mobile.

    QSO with BJ a few times in his mobile on 75 meters, lumped a good signal down here to Florida.
    Back when he drove to work in the mornings,
