The hole for the tower is being dug. A trench will also be dug and layed
with suitable coduit. This will run from the tower to the radio room
entrance, about 70 feet from the tower and includes a 90 degree turn. I will
probably run 3 or 4 feeders all 1/2" heliax type together with rotator and
ancillary switching cables. Feeders will be buried from the tower to the
house but will rise up about 12 feet to enter the upstairs radio room. The
question is where would be the best place to put my protection devices, if
any, at the grounded copper entrance panel fitted to the house or in a
grounded steel box at the base of the tower?
