Hi i am new here and new to cb, i have been given 2 old cb radios with antennas i am planning on fitting 1 in my car but the other i would like to have in my flat. I am in a second floor flat i have a hole mount on the antenna but i wanted to check, do i need to earth the antenna if its mounted onto the metal hand rail on the balcony? running an earth into the ground isnt an option.

I will be glad to receive any advice.

Many thanks
Ricky

if its a rail with a fence type of fitting then just try swr first and see what you get dont make the fitting of the antenna too complicated
