Thanks to "Tinker John" (W5CYF) for this excellent discussion on RF Grounding for Amateur/Ham Radio.  Although grounding covers a multitude of purposes, John does a good job of sketching out the facts needed to make your ham shack "grounded" and safe for operation.

Although the RF grounding steps outlined in this video are easy enough to implement, John does extend this precaution:

"IMPORTANT: Effective and safe station grounding is a complex and often controversial subject. This video is not intended to be a how-to guide for safe and/or effective grounding. It is recommended that you seek qualified advice and instruction for your specific station and environment."

To be on the safe side, please ground your station according to guidelines contained in the latest edition of the "National Electrical Code". If you need further help, please contact a licensed electrician .
