    Should I add a grounding strap to the antenna mount.

    Ok. I had a similar experience and this is what I did to mine in a 2017 Ram. Using the top piece of your mount only bare the metal on the rack and mount it to it with self tapping sheet metal screws then run ground straps from bed to frame, rack to bed and this was my biggest help ground strap...

    In a tree?

    Currently no base but since Trump wants to give me some money I'm going to pass it along to DNJ and buy a new antenna and use my 2950cd and Kl503p on a power supply. I am currently in my mobile home until my house sells and I have to hide it. I'm not afraid to climb the tree and when I move the...

    Base antenna, High noise floor tips..

    Ok after looking at pic this is just my thought..a choke at the feedline at antenna. Also unplug electronics in the room and check for any difference. Does that AC unit run during the day? A ground wouldn't hurt but may not help either. Possible to raise the antenna a bit?

    Is it worth it to change the coax to RG8X? I will never run more than 300 watts through this.
