Hello John;
You can ground both the antenna mast and the antenna. your best bet is to place an 8ft grounding rod in the ground from radio shack or local two-way radio shop. Then connect the grounding rod to your mast. You can get a polyphaser from your local two-way radio shop this will connect between your antenna and the radio. it will also be grounded to the grounding rod. This should leave you in pretty good shape.

Happy DXing

Cobra microTALK PR 3500-2 DX VP 2-Way


The Cobra microTALK PR-3500-2 DX VP Radios are supposed to be equipped with acoustic noise filters that are built in the microphone. This problem could have been caused from the radios getting wet, damaged, or the microphone going bad, the microphone can be replaced if you still have the warranty, but if you want to save money you may wan to get a new set of 2-ways. I suggest the Uniden GMR325-2, these models are inexpensive and have an approximate 5 mile range in good conditions.

Good Luck!

If you antenna SWR are way out ( too high ) you may have burrned the final or driver up when you hooked it up to do the antenna adjustment. Also be sure to turn the high power switch on to adjust the antenna SWR or the SWR meter won't read correctly, if the RF power is too low. Good Luck
