    I am ready to install an antenna using a chimney mount. I have cable running to the antenna from the diplexer which is also connected to the Directv Plus dish. What is the best way to ground the antenna?
    Thanks,
    Andy

    Andrew, if it were me, I'd ground the OTA antenna in the same fashion as the DBS, either connect the ground to the House's ground or run a heavy ground wire to an 8 foot copper rod (wire and rod both sold at Home Depot). Since you have cable running between the two, the ground potential difference between them should be zero (which is good).
