I have a strange issue with my mag mount.   Oddly enough a had a similar issue with a rill mount on another vehicle with a different antenna.    In this instance, it's a Sirio PL 145 mount and Sirio 5000 PL antenna.   When I screw the antenna on too tight, all incoming signals drop down and I send RF squeals when TXing.   Slacken it off a bit and everything is fine.   I can't see why this would happen.   Any ideas anyone?

In some better weather I'll open it up and see if I can improve the ground connection some how.   As it is, its via a contact plate on a single screw hole, where the top part of the mount screws down.    I've been in there before to re-wire with RG8 mini, I also used silicon sealant around various possible water ingress points.

Common fault with them is the coax connection in the base.
I have 2 of them bought at different times and both had bad coax connections.
