hams will say multiple earth grounding points/rods . reality shows it can work with no earth grounding . it depends on what you want to do and if you're having noise issues . BTW . mobile systems can work extremely well with no earth grounding . i suggest if you can earth ground do it . if money is tight or grounding is more effort than you want to do try it without and see what your results are .
