OK, maybe you are right.  But, if I don't have the ground hooked up to the 
rig and I touch my tuner, the SWR varies.  When I hook up the ground, it 
doesn't do that.  And I know for a fact, I have run long wire antennas and 
if I don't have a good ground, I get bit bad by RF on the mike.  When I hook 
up the ground, it quits.  It must be doing something.  I'm confused!  73
