I thought you had a mag mount. In any case it's not tough to figure out, measure the resistance of the whip to the body to see if there is conductivity or not. BTW, is the little ball by chance missing from the end of your antenna whip? Those are there to dissipate static, too. Their name is pretty clever, corona balls. :-)
