     Off-the-top-of-my-head list:

1.   Proximity of grounds (electrical service close to cable TV close to
water pipe close to phone close to shack close to etc.)

2.   Laying of ground ring around home and connecting into interior ground

3.   Location of shack relative to upstairs living space (CQ, CQ, CQ 'TEST.
THIS IS...  coming from beneath the TV room or sleeping quarters is not so

4.   Plenty of juice (separate electrical breaker panel with 240-Volt
service into shack/work shop.)

5.   Two (minimum) or three four-inch underground conduit runs out to
(future) tower location.

Hope to hear you on soon.
