-- The problem with "mag mounts" is they have no ground except what they get
with the magnet! An old ham (who is actually younger than I am) said run a
ground wire from the frame of the car to the pl-259 connector after it's
connected to the radio using a heater hose clamp to attach the wire. I have
used this method and it also has the added benefit of less noise and a better
"I would never belong to any group,
that would have me as a member!"
Opinions are like armpits, everybody has
at least two, and they usually stink !!!
