Just finishing up my first station install. Have a "single point ground
plate/bar" wall mounted just above and behind the operating position. Desk is
an old computer/printer stand made out of metal - surface, sides, legs, back,
etc., with 2ftX4ft surface. Figured on grounding it too. Opr position is in
Had always read that everything should be grounded to this single point.
Looking at my RCS-4 coax switch, MFJ P/S, and Ham rotor controller I don't
see any "Gnd" connection points provided - yet their diagrams show "earth
ground" symbols. What is the drill here? Just remove a screw from the covers
and insert a full ring connector for a ground wire to then be run/attached?
Ground array "outside" is cross-connected to all others present (like power
service and tower, etc.) except the Telco, per some advice from their
engineers. Used #4 solid Cu for short lead to single point plate, bolted
solid now. All mech type connections in the system - no solder.
Thanks in advance, 73's
