    Fitting a shark antenna to a Romahome Outlook

    I’m fed up with the poor radio reception in my Outlook, so I’ve bought an external “shark” antenna to go on the top of the “Luton”.

    I know I’ll need to earth the base so the amplifier works, but as its a fibreglass shell, do I also need to include a metal ground plane for the antenna?

    The lack of antenna earth was always the problem with the Romahome Berlingo based models, Romahome rarely provided a good enough earth to get the radio to work well in all areas, some vans had foil on the inside skin of the GRP where the aerial was attached but it was rarely earthed properly. So in answer to your question, yes earth the antenna properly if you want an improvement on what you've got.
