I am in the process of building my station at a new QTH and have a question 
about the single point ground.
I will initially be installing a Steppir on a Trylon 70' tower which is about 
170 feet from the proposed shack. 
The shack will be in a walkout basement room. The entry panel will be outside 
of this area. 
The house is serviced with underground power and phone. The nearest utility 
pole is about 800 feet away. (above ground)
The utility power entry is located about 65 feet away on the opposite end of 
the house from the shack. The utility uses a UFER ground.

How should I tie/route the utility ground to my single point ground. Does the 
tie wire need to be routed outside and buried or can it be run through the 
structure or a combination of the two? (concrete driveway and sidewalks in the 
way outside)
