My current station desk is attached to an "exterior" wall, so the wire going
from the ground rod to the station is not even 2 feet long.

I plan on setting up a second station in another room (one, a modern
station, the other, a vintage or boatanchor station), which will be about
ten feet from a wall with access outside for connection to a ground rod.

My question is whether, in this second situation, the wire leading to the
ground rod is too long?  How do other people on this list handle the lead-in
wire from the ground rod?  Tom W6EIJ

Where do you get ICE bandpass filters & beverage matching boxes?  The
same place that pays for the hosting of this list:  The eHam Store.
