thank you again W8JI  Smiley

no tower here . i'm just using 2 inch and 1 1/2 inch conduit for mast and it will give me a very modest 18 ft feed-point . i'm building it in a way that allows me to pivot the bottom so i can easily raise and lower it so i can tinker with my antenna and play with future antenna projects .

sorry if i seem dense , but i have another question ...
if my antenna/mast is properly bonded to the ground rod installed to the homes electrical service ...... if lightning his my antenna doesn't that put everything electrical in the house at more risk damage wise than if the antenna was not bonded/connected to the homes power main entrance and got hit ?
