At what point does one bond the lightning and RF grounds to the utility
company's ground? I have read "at the service entrance panel"; does that
mean I have to bring a conductor from the lightning/RF grounds into the
building to connect to the ground bus in the panel, or can I clamp it to
the conduit (after scraping down to bare metal) that comes out of the
ground and up to the meter, or to the conduit leading from the meter
into the panel (more difficult because all that is accessible outside
the building is a fitting with no flat service allowing for convenient
clamping)? Or . . . ?|
Also: I see no sign of a ground conductor from our recently installed DirecTV dish. I assume that this should have been grounded too?

_______________________________________________That's why we insist on bonding the phone company (and power provider) grounds to ours before they come into the building. Before doing that, we had lots of trouble with lightning coming in through those outside lines. Bonding them to the station ground, which is much better than all of the others combined, almost eliminates lightning intrusion and losses.
