First of all:
I live in north of Argentina and there are no grounding/lightning
I live apart from town and we have no internet nor telefone :-((
I want to put a tower of 70m (230ft) to put wifi antennas in the town
There will also be a little building to put modem, server there.
In my house I have already a tower (with no grounding etc. nothing)
I have read a lot of articel of grounding antenna from the mail archive.
Thanks for the nice articles!!
But I have a lot of questions :-)
Here some of there ...
1. I've read in some articles that you should use 4 ground roads per leg
(I think of 8ft, 1/2' Copper). This would give a total length of 32ft
In an other article is the Polyphaser recommendation:
Polyphaser suggests each tower leg ground radial be at least 75 ft long
with ground rods spaced
along that length as appropriate.
What should be putted and how?
What I mean is my tower will "tripod" of 45cm (1.5ft) wide, so there are 3
very close each one. How to I put this 4 legs
2. The towers here must be paintet red and white. The tower will be normal
My question now: between the elements there should be no tint because of
but what about oxidation there?
3. What is a good resistence from the ground to the tower, 5ohms?
4. AWG4 is a solit cable or braid? Is this right that it's diameter is
If read about:
Different grounding points should be connected together with AWG4 or 1-1/2
What thickness should have this strap?
So I think enough for today. I must read on the archive :-)
Thanks a lot for any information which you are willing to share with me!
