Simple Ham Radio Antennas--Amateur Radio Tower Grounding. Post #524.


If you're having trouble viewing this video, please insert this URL into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/6cIdrtJINcw. A good, basic tutorial from Tom Stockman (N2RCT) on how to ground your antenna radio tower.  The basic idea is to prevent lightning damage to your equipment by connecting all elements to a single low impedance point.  In addition to grounding your tower, you should also disconnect your amateur radio equipment and all feed lines when you're away from home.  Your antenna feed line should be terminated in a ground stake away from your shack.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.
