Great, thanks. I think I had been referred to that post before but its confirmation that I need to deal with it.

I have a question, I just drove my ground rod down & it occurred to me... Where do I hook the ground wire to on my slinky antenna? The ends of the slinky are run through some short pieces of PVC piping. I then have the lead wire soldered on and running down & along the paracord anchor line then it comes off & into my house through a window.

Would I run a separate ground line off the end of the slinky like I have done with the lead wire or splice off the lead line & into the ground? Or... something else?
