hi there Tom.
Again, thanks for the response.
I found out, by reading here (and there) my antenna don't need those RF radials. But as You say, theres much written about the topic.
QRZ? Is it an internet site? I'm not quite aware of how to enter my position there. Its just a bit south of Årnes, namely Auli.
Edit: I found size and entered my position.
However I'm registerred at NRRL's site at their list of radiohams,with position/address and club is Nedre Romerike gruppe av NRRL.
I thought I was erased from their member list and was surprised that I didn't have to register again, after 30 years away.
Thank You for clearing up whether to connect chassiegrounds of equipment with the ac-power-grounding.
I will look into Stavanger group.
A ground mounted vertical sounds interesting, but my XYL prefers a view to the apple and cherry tree in the spring :-). But mounting antenna above roof made me another concern, the lightning.
With my bad rocky ground I'm starting to be a bit worried. But Ill read on and try to find some knowledge how to lessen that fear. The best Ive come upto present time is grounding the antenna's support walve to a (bad dry) soil.

LA5RT de LA1BRA, RF ground is a different issues than station ground. however many station grounds to bond to the same place...I looked on QRZ for your location and no listing found yet..I'm in Tananger, Just out side Stavanger.
We have a big club here full of advice....
anyway, if you are in rocky terrain (this is Norway hihi) your ground radials for the vertical run at angles away from the base of the antenna, generally speaking the more the better. they can lay on top of whatever and will work, much can be said on the subject of how many and such.
Station/safety ground, big YES, bond all electrical equipment to a common ground that is also bonded to the 220 supply to the house.
see QRZ and pick up my direct email, will be glad to tell of my learnings with a vertical on the patio 1.5 meters above sea level..
