the receiver, 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 Electric Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70- 1984,
provides information with respect to proper grounding of the mast
and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna
discharge unit, size of grounding connectors, location of antenna-dis-
charge unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode. See Figure below.
21. Object and Liquid Entry - Care should be taken so that objects do not
fall and liquids are not spilled into the enclosure through openings.
