Whip Antenna

What is the difference between rubber antenna and whip antenna ?

A whip antenna is usually a vertical thin wire and the bulk of the length is a simple "vertical radiator" or "straight bit of wire".

Most "rubber" aerials have loading coils to enable the overall length of the antenna to be reduced.

*more info :-

Some aerials (antenna) combine the "whippyness" with both "base loading" and also a spiral wind of wire to the top (around a fibreglass core usually). This might for example be used to make a 5/8ths wave antenna - offering good gain, fairly compact size and a fairly good frequency spread for transmitting (before needing to re-tune)
