If you connect the ground wire to anything, it makes having a quick disconnect pointless (I have seen this in person, and tried not to laugh :rofl. I've got my wire wrapped around the antenna itself and then secured with a zip-tie, I've never attached it anywhere. SWR's tested out of the box at 1.2-1.3 or so.Here is a question. What is everyone doing with the permanent ground wire attached to the Wilson Flex?
I have left mine disconnected for the one trip that I have used it on thus far. Not sure this is a good idea though.
I did scrub some paint off the underside of the bandi mount to get some good metal to metal contact. I also scrubbed some some paint from the bandi screw hole and used a star locking washer for mounting to the door hinge. Should I also be looking for a location to connect the antenna's built in ground wire? I do notice that things like activating the washer fluid gives feedback into the radio.
