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. :-)

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
