QUTDOOR ANTENNA INSTALLATION
SAFEANTENNA AND CABLECONNECTION
If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to the
equipment, be sure the antenna or cable system is grounded so as
to provide some protection against built up static charges
and voltage surges. Section
810 of the National Electrical
Code, ANSUNFPA 70 (in Canada,
part 1 of the Canadian Electrical
Code) provides information
with respect to proper grounding
of the mast and supporting
structure, grounding of the lead-in wire PA
to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors,
location of antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding
electrodes and requirements for the grounding electrode.
KEEP ANTENNA CLEAROFHIGHVOLTAGE POWERLINESOR CIRCUITS
An outside antenna system should be located well away from
power lines, electric ight or power circuits and where it will never
come into contact with these power sources if it should happen to
fall. When installing an outside antenna, extreme care should be
taken to avoid touching power lines, circuits or other power
sources as this could be fatal. Because of the hazards involved,
antenna installation should be left to a professional.
