Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur
Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur by Ward Silver, N0AX, is now available from ARRL. Proper station grounding is important! Build your ham radio station with effective grounding and bonding techniques for electrical safety, lightning protection, and RF management.
Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur shows you how to make sure your station follows current standards for lightning protection and communication systems, not to mention the National Electrical Code. You’ll learn effective grounding and bonding techniques for stations in a house, condo, or apartment, for portable and temporary situations, and for towers and outdoor antennas.
… Build your ham radio station with effective grounding and bonding techniques:
- AC safety: protects against shock hazards from ac-powered equipment by providing a safe path for current when a fault in wiring or insulation occurs.
- Lightning protection: keeps all equipment at the same voltage during transients from lighting and dissipate the lightning’s charge in the Earth, routing it away from equipment.
- RF management: prevents unwanted RF currents and voltages from disrupting the normal functions of equipment (also known as RF interference or RFI).
Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur shows you how to make sure your station follows current standards for lightning protection and communication systems, not to mention the National Electrical Code. You’ll learn effective grounding and bonding techniques for home stations, including condos and apartments, portable and temporary stations, as well as towers and outside antennas.
