Constructing a Amateur Radio Antenna Grounding Box

If you can't see the video, please insert this title URL into your browser search box: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc_L5xpEpxo. 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. ------ For the latest Amateur/Ham Radio news and information, please visit these websites: http://www.HawaiiARRL.info. http://www.arrl.org. http://www.blubrry.com/arrlaudionews/ http://www.hamradioupda
