Constructing a Amateur Radio Antenna Grounding Box

Thanks to Tom from "Practical Engineering Solutions" for this simple project designed to "ground antennas to earth ground and provide lightning protection for your rig."

If you live in a lightning and thunderstorm-prone region, this project will go a long way in keeping your shack , home, and equipment out of harm's way.

As an added precaution, I alway disconnect my antennas and equipment when I'm not using my ham radio gear.  So far, I've been lucky--I lost a fiberglass mast (with nothing attached) a few years ago, and that incident convinced me to ground all of my gear and antennas to a real earth ground.
