I made very careful VSWR and F/B ratio tests on my XM-240. Then I attached a 1.0" wide aluminum strap around the center of the reflector and bolted it to the channel to ground same.
Then I carefully re-tested the antenna and it was identical in every way. So, if there is some interaction with the reflector floating, it may disappear with the reflector grounded to the boom!
