Ok I have started setting up a new grounding system for the station. I just drove a 8' ground rod into the ground, I only managed to get about 6' down before I hit good old new england rock, which really surprized me that I could get that deep. Now I am looking at buying one of the copper bar kits, I will be able to reach the bar with about 6' of 1" braided and tinned strap from inside the shack. I plan to ground my antenna mast, rig/tuner, and the coax to the bar and the bar to the rod with a solid copper strap. The coax will be grounded using these neat little straps that wrap around the coax after removing the outer insulation. Not sure if the coax ground is a good idea or if its needed so I am looking for comments on this. So does this make sense ??
