<<<The [surge supressor] in the station should be grounded to the single point station ground
panel, as well as to the home safety ground.>>>

<<This sounds like a great way to turn your house wiring dc safety ground into a giant antenna by transferring rf from the shack rf ground to the 3rd wire on the house service lines.>>

p.s. It also sounds like a way to set up a nice ground loop in your station so RF can get into places you don't want it.
