that's a link about the importance of minimizing ground losses for good transmission power - so like i said use a braided strap to connect to the hood, because minimizing ground losses is the biggest way to mitigate common mode current flow. you want as much metal as possible right under your antenna, so if you're using the mount above make sure you have a good strap to the hood.
