Thanks, that all explains what I am doing wrong. I find those instructions on Firestik's website to be pretty confusing. I didn't isolate the antenna from the ground and the antenna didn't come with some of these parts. Any idea where I can get an isolation insulation washer like that?
Thanks again guys for your help...
