My DirecTV dish is currently mounted on the side of my house and close to the service entrance. When I installed it, it was simple to run a ground wire down the side of the house to the house ground and be done with it. Unfortunately, my neighbor decided to plant a tree directly under the line of site between my dish and the satellites. This wasn't an issue until the tree grew tall enough to start getting into the signal, so now I will have to move the dish. The best option for me would be to get up on the roof and hang the antenna off the chimney, which is almost dead center in the middle of my roof, and would give me a completely clear view of the satellites, but also create a problem for the grounding. I see the following two options, but don't know which is better, or actually, if the one option is even safe. Option 1: bring the ground wire through the roof next to the chimney, then run it across the attic, and down the side of the house to the main ground point for the house. I hate to run a ground wire down the entire side of the house, but I assume that this is legal and safe. I just want to make sure. Option 2): bring the ground wire through the roof next to the chimney, then run it to a grounded electrical box in the attic. This would be by far the easiest, that grounded box actually is tied through the main panel to the house ground outside anyway. This saves me wire, and also having to look at a ground wire running down the outside of the house. Is this a legal and safe ground? Does it create any other problems? I appreciate any feedback on this issue because when it comes to grounding, I certainly do not want to make a mistake that ends up burning the house down.
