At the risk of raising a dead thread, I have a followup question. Like the gentleman starting this thread, I am a new ham starting out.
I have a 2m/70cm vertical with an MFJ window panel and G5RV on the way. My plan is to ground the antennas and the window panel outside the window with a ground rod and then run a cable around to the other side of the house connecting the antenna/station ground to the electrical service ground. Is this the right solution?
Alternatively, the house is old and has BX wiring (flexible steel conduit) and good ground everywhere, can trying into this ground suffice for connecting to the electrical ground?
If I add another vertical or tower I would ground that at it's location and it's feedline would be grounded at the station entrance, yes?
