Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Amateur Radio Tower Grounding. Post #479

An important video from"TimTools99" about the importance of tower grounding for amateur radio operators. Tim says the key to protecting your ham radio equipment against lightning damage is connection to a SINGLE, low impedance grounding point. Tim adds that the goal of grounding an antenna tower is to drain off static electricity buildup so that lightning isn't attracted to your tower or nearby home.  It's also a good idea to disconnect your radio equipment when you are done for the day.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.
