Hi Leto,
If your coil posses small capacity than floating bottom ungrounded wire
may play a role of dominant capacity of 10 pF or maybe more (that
depends again on lenght of it).The truth is that for small 1/4 wave
coils bottom can be connected to a small capacity box and system still
works well (yes 1/4 wave mode is changed but just a little).Our mother
Earth is also a capacity -not a theoreticaly pure 0 point-althought
this is an extreme comparation to your observation...
