I've read in these forums that not all grounds are created equal -- with a caveat about avoiding unequal potentials. I attached a Fanfare FM whip to my roof eave; it comes w/RG59/U cable, and I put a "static discharge" unit in the run at the mount base. Fanfare says just run a grd wire to a ground stake but I'm not sure if this is sufficient. I don't trust my nearby coldwater hosebib for a ground because the house main service panel (on the far side of the house from this antenna) is grounded to the natural gas meter pipe! At City Hall, a bldg inspector suggests running a 10AVG ground from the ANT block to the ground terminal at the rear of my AVR. I still have not run the ant wire into the house. Do I have any real concerns about running afoul of "offset ground potentials"?
