Regarding the less than useful practice of connecting all ham equipment
chassis via a grounding bar, why do the equipment manufacturers usually
provide a grounding lug on the back of the chassis?

Station ground bus bars are an obsolete grounding practice, modern grounding
design practices provide far superior AC power safety and lightning


While a heavy
ground wire could be run from the grounding window to the station equipment
bus bar and then to each station equipment, it is likely to have such high
impedance that it is highly unlikely to perform any useful function.
