Did you bond (connect) the grounding rod to the ground of your domestic supply? If not, it's essential that you do that.I grounded my antenna two ways:
-ran a copper wire (heavy gauge) from the antenna down to a grounding rod in the ground beside my house
-used a grounding block inside my house attached to my copper plumbing for the coax cable.
I also have my feed going through two surge protectors before it gets to my OTA box.
I may have over protected myself, but find the signal loss is very minimal with this setup and hope my TV won't die in a lightning strike.
No - the grounding rod was a 8' rod that I drove into the ground, not requiring connection to the water supply ground.Did you bond (connect) the grounding rod to the ground of your domestic supply? If not, it's essential that you do that.
