Antenna Coax Grounding by Whitham D. Reeve based on the National Electrical Code (NEC) Article 810

In many threads about running coax to antennas, some of us will usually mention "be sure to properly ground things" without going into a whole lot of details. We may even mention that the National Electrical Code (NEC) requires it for all homes and businesses within the United States.

I found an excellent "white paper" on this subject written by Whitham D. Reeve and have attached it to this thread. The original document was found at this URL:

The document is easily understood by all because of Reeve's writing style. Additionally, on 10 of the 14 pages are detailed illustrations and/or photographs to complement the material being read as well as references to specific paragraphs of the NEC.

I hope that you all find the attached document as well written and informative as I did. Cheers! Dave K4EET
