Antenna grounding and safety warning
1. Outdoor antennas and lead-in conductors from antenna to a build-
ing, should not cross over open conductors of electric light or
power circuits.They should be kept away from all circuits to avoid
the possibility of accidental contact.
2. Each conductor of a lead-in from an outdoor antenna should be
connected with an antenna discharge unit. Antenna dicharge units
(or Lightning Arrestors) should be located outside the building or
inside the building between the point of entrance of the lead-in and
the TV, and as near as practical to the entrance of the conductors
to the building.
