Amateur Radio Tower Grounding. Post # 651.


If you're having difficulty viewing this video, please insert this address into your browser search box: https://youtu.be/6cTdrtJINcw. A concise, well-done, and easily followed tutorial from TomTools99 (N2RGT).  The primary rule for protecting ham radio equipment against lightning strikes is connection of all antenna elements to a single, low impedance grounding point. You can add another layer of safety by disconnecting all of your amateur radio equipment at the close of the operating day.  This video provides useful guidance in protecting your valuable ham radio equipment from nearby lightning strikes.  A direct hit is a different matter.  For the latest Amateur Radio news and events, please check out the blog sidebars.  These news feeds are updated daily.  You can follow our blog community with a free email subscription or by tapping into the blog RSS feed.  Thanks for joining us today!  Aloha es 73 de Russ (KH6JRM).
