Any outdoor antenna must be located away from all power lines.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna is connected to your tuna ut turret-preamplifier. be
sure the antenna system is grounded so as to provide some protection
against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Section 810 of the
National Electrical Code. ANSI/NFPA No. 70-1984. provides information with
respect to proper grounding ot the mast and supporting structure. grounding
of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size at grounding
conductors. location of antenna discharge unlt. connection to grounding
electrodes, and requiremems for the grounding electrode.
a. Use No.10 AWG (5.3 mm) copper. No.8 AWG (8.4 mm) aluminum.
No.17 AWG (1.0 mm) copperclad steel or bronze wire. or larger. as a
0. Secure antenna lead-In and ground wires to house with stand
c. Mount antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where lead-in
d. Use jumper wire not smaller than No.6 AWG (13.3 mm) copper. or the
equivalent. when a separate antenna-grounding electrode is used. See NEC
Section 810-21 (1).
