my antenna on my '71 is loose and wobbly,

how do I tighten it? do I have to try and get at it from under the car (real pain)

or is there a trick to this.

Nut on the base of the antenna is usually the cause. If the nut will not tighten further, you may have to crawl under and ensure the antenna body is making good contact with the ground plate.

my ground plate turns as I tighten the nut, actually the nut is as tight as it can go, but you can still turn it and see from below that the plate turns too.

Ground plate should not turn. Sounds like you may need to R&R the set up; might need a replacment antenna body.
