grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of
grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements for the
grounding electrode. See figure.
POWER LINES - An outside antenna system should not be located in the vicinity of overhead power
lines or other electric light or power circuits, where it can fall into such power lines or circuits. When
installing an outside antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from touching such power
lines or circuits, as contact with them might be fatal.
