Default Where to ground a Gray-Hoverman OTA.

Just wondering where is a good point or spot to ground a Single Gray-Hoverman antenna.

The Gray-Hoverman antenna is built on a PVC pole bolted to a 12 foot metal pole.

Thank You.

You ground the metal mast, not the antenna.

Somehow I am brain dead at the moment, could you please explain much more. Not trying to be funny, the antenna is made out of #6 copper wire isolated from the metal mast by the PVC tubing/pole. If the antenna gets hit by lightning, the lightning strike will flow through the balum and straight to the TV, in what part of the hybrid pole do I place and connect the grounding block to the ground wire.

Thank You.
