    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation.

I've been reading all the threads on grounding antenna towers my question is how do you run the ground and bonding wire. 1st do i have to use insulators to keep the wire off roof and side of house 2nd do the rods have to be in same area (to much concrete around house
3rd how do you bond the separated rods and to the main electrical ground ? My electric service is underground but I do see a ground wire where the phone and cable seem to be grounded to. I have 1 mast now that I grounded to a rod using aluminum wire but I'm adding
a new tower and want to do it right as long as its cost effective and practical it seems like it will take an awful lot of ground wire. any simple answers ?
