Hi fellow qrpers,

        Someone mentioned on the list to be using a heavy magnetic mount
for mobile antenna. I was using a heavy duty magnetic mount wqith a diamond
mono band 40M whip and I was experiencing floating earth..and SWR go crazy!
Later I had it mounted on my boot mount with a coax sleeve soldered from the
earth side to the car chasis. Ever since I have no problem any more.
