• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

The National Electrical Code in the US states that any additional ground rods must be bonded together and to the house main electrical entry point with no less than 6ga copper wire and if the run is over a certain length which I forget, it needs to be even bigger.

So, if your smaller than 6ga on your ground rods you are not to code and you should upsize. If you have not bonded new ground rods to your house main electrical entry point you should do it. See NEC Article 810.


Would there be any advantage to running heavier battery cable type jumpers between my ground rods ?
