Thank you, Zak.
2m antenna ground necessary? AB7RK on 10/9/20
I have a 2m Diamond vertical antenna of 1995 vintage. Fiberglass body, 8' tall. I know I need to ground the radio itself, but what are the recommendations for grounding the antenna - or is it necessary? The manual that came with the antenna doesn't address its grounding. Is the antenna grounded through the coax shielding to the radio itself?
Thank you for any advice!
