An exceptionally well-done safety video from Tinker John (W5CYF) on the fundamentals of Ham Radio station grounding.  This basic tutorial gives you a simple, safe, and effective way to ground your station equipment and to lessen the possibility of a lightning strike damaging your station. Tinker John also discusses the distinction between grounding and electrical bonding.  This video is not intended to be a "how-to-guide", but rather serves as an introduction to simple practices that will prevent damage to your equipment and shack.  If you have further questions about station grounding, please seek advice from a professional engineer.
