I have bought the MFJ-4601 Feed-through panel to hook up coax and ground wire to keep from having to drill hole. My question is will I have a problem with running two coax jumpers from my FT-897D for 1.8-60 MHz and 2 meter  and 70 cm. Then I got to run 2 ground wires from the FT-897D and the MFJ-945E antenna tuner.They will all run side by side to the panel and then on the outside a ground wire will run to the ground rod and the two coax cables will run to the antennas. Will this cause a problem or will it be ok?

Lamar,

   You do not need to run two individual ground wires from the rig and tuner all the way to the ground rod.  Just run a ground wire from each piece of equipment to a single connection point inside the shack.  Then run a single ground wire from that point to the MFJ panel and down to the ground rod.  There are plentry of coax connections available for your needs.
