Next, you have to decide how you are going to configure the ground, and this will vary from installation to installation. We were able to use the factory default configuration -- connectors #1 (SO-259 shield) and #2 (ground lead of the antenna side of the 9:1 transformer) shorted. Basically, this leaves the connection to the antenna ungrounded and the user should ground the receiver in the shack.
Even though we did not observe it during our test, this installation may pick up man-made noise. If this is the case, you can also take the short between connections #1 and #2 out and ground one or both of these connections (#2 direct to ground and #1 grounded back to the receiver). This installation works very well in noisy environments from man-made sources.

Thanks for your answers radionut .
What do you mean by taking the short between connections #1 and #2 out and ground one or both of these connections (#2 direct to ground and #1 grounded back to the receiver). I am new to all of this so can you explain how this is done and also how do you ground the receiver ?
