Beginner Ham Radio #6 - Grounding. Post #1357.

One of the key components of any amateur radio antenna system is having a decent ground system for your equipment and antenna.  In this video from Joe Lalumia, we see an excellent example of establishing a workable and safe grounding system for your ham radio station.  Although I may have missed some of Joe's guidelines, it may be worth noting that all ground rods should be tied together, including your AC service, as per NEC requirements.  Overall, this is a well thought out approach to grounding.  Don't put you or your station's safety at risk.  Take your time and install a proper grounding system.
