Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me if there is any electrical code that specifies how far
from the side of my house I should bury an 8-ft. ground rod? 

I have a 9-ft. peaked roof mounted tower and I will be running a very heavy
gauge (thick as my thumb) jacketed stranded copper cable from the tower leg
to the ground rod. 

If there is no code for this application, are there any recommendations?

Roger, K2JAS
