    Everything in package. The crimp on ring terminal makes running the coax easy as there is no obstructive connection. You crimp on the terminal at the end.

    How did you ground yours?

    Does it have to be grounded?

    I have the "no ground plane" cable so grounding is not an issue. mine is mounted to my aluminum toolbox, works fine.
