Re: How to ground Antenna?

Okay, so I got my SWR Meter in the post this morning, this time it's reading well over 3!

I think it's my ground plane, can you please give me tips on how to ground a magmount whip antenna? There is no grounding points on it! :(

Re: How to ground Antenna?

Hey!

No they aren't new, I can give exact info later on, but I know one is a Murphy and looks quite old. It had a power meter on it with a dial, the other is newer. They were both serviced before I bought them.
