Gary - not sure what point you are making. Say we did have the perfect
RF Ground at the radio, impedance zero, voltage zero. That's when the
common-mode current is highest and when the radiation from the coax in
the shack will be highest. Don't confuse "zero voltage" with "zero
radiation" - quite the opposite in this case!
