I am getting ready to ground my antenna system. I have my Lighting Arrestor. Should I ground my power supply and radio to the same ground as the Lighting Arrestor?
Ok.. Ken,Hi all,
I'm working on my technician license as I type. While doing that I'm trying to plan my installation based on a couple prerequisites. Antenna locations are already preset. It's a long story so I won't go into that.
Basically, one location is on the peak of the house at the west end. The other is just above the gutter on the east end.
The station will be in the basement near the center of the home.
I've read a lot about grounding and like it was earlier mentioned, everyone has "their" way. So I'll give you my plans an see what you have to say.
My soil is clay.
1) An 8' grounding rod will be placed at the base of each antenna.
2) A grounding rod will be place outside of the basement window near where the equipment will be. (10' - 15' run)
3) I'm planning on using #8 solid copper wire.
4) This is what I'm not too sure about. I'm planning on linking all three rods together so that everything is on the same grounding system.
All comments and suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks for your help.
