I had a question posed to me today that I'm not sure what to recommend. The 
installation is at a commercial building. They wish to install a 2M vertical on 
top of a two-story building. They currently have a 60' tower with HF antenna 
that is located 150' from where a new mast will be installed for the 2M 
vertical. They want to ground the mast, and wanted to know if they should run a 
separate ground wire for this mast, or to run a ground wire to the tower which 
is approximately 150' away. A direct ground wire will be about 75' from the 
mast to the ground. Any thoughts?
