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 for the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding connectors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes and requirements for the grounding electrode.
To the CATV system installer: This reminder is provided to
call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-44 of
the NEC that provides guidelines for proper grounding and, in particular,
specifies that the cable ground shall be connected to the grounding
system of the building, as close to the point of cable entry as practical.
