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
