When It`s Raining !

Is it just me or is there more activity on the airwaves when its raining...

Antenna v Roof Box...?

Re: Anybody Used One Of These ?

Would I get a proper earth from just filing away the paint on the bracket where it attatches to the bolts ? Or would I need to run an earth to the car body etc. Also I am looking to fit a wilson 1000 to the bracket what connections would you suggest ?

Cheers
