Will grounding increase antenna range?


My antenna system has unreliable reception. I have my antenna mounted about thirty feet in the air using 3 ten foot sections of mast joined together. Could the connection of the 3 sections of the antenna mast create a poor ground and cause me to lose signal?

Tech Tip:

A good antenna ground is important for safety, but does little for signal gain.
