… 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).
