    This is CR7BAC, Pedro Silva from Portugal, and i have a newbie question: due to my complicated conditions to setup my shack (2nd floor apartment on a 5-floor building), i will use a MFJ-915 line filter and a MFJ-931 artificial GND to "try" to compensate a little bit the lack of grounding on my station and see if i can get some QRM reduced.
    However, i am a bit confused about the sequence i should connect these devices together with my Yaesu FT-450, ATU and Daiwa CN-501H Cross-Needle meter. What i thought was like this:
    Antenna > MFJ-915 line filter > ATU > CN-501H meter > FT450
    Is that correct?
    And for the grounding, MFJ-931 artificial GND connected to a copper rigid stripe which will receive the connection of FT-450 and ATU grounds. Is that correct or i should ground only the ATU and not the radio itself?
    Thanks folks!
    71 DE CR7BAC, Pedro Silva.
