[quote=arxaw;18475993]1. Outdoor antenna masts and coax entry points should be grounded to your home's main electrical power ground source. Google: grounding TV antennas.
Ok. Did this search, but the illustrations are seriously lacking that I found. From what I can see, I need to run a wire from the antenna to the ground on the house's electrical ground and and insert an coax cable grounding block close to where the signal enters the house with a separate wire running to the electrical ground, also.
I am not using a mast. The antenna is hanging from two clips/hooks with the base of the antenna screwed directly into a couple of spacer blocks of wood that are a-fixed to the side of the house.
Would I put a ground wire on one of those screws - that would count as the first ground? Then, run the coax into the grounding block and then back into the house with a grounding wire attached to that block - that would count for the second ground?
Also, the antenna is on the front of the house and the electrical unit is on the back of the house. I have to run those two grounding wires all the way around the house to properly ground them or can I just install a grounding rod closer to the front of the house?
Thanks for all the help.
