This kit provides you with everything you need to ground your antenna with zero technical know-how. Set-up will take no more than 15 minutes. Grounding your outdoor antenna is important for protecting your home. Basically, you need to put 2 clamps on with a wrench and push one 3-foot stake into the ground.
This kit comes with 3 stakes, but only one needs to be used. These materials work with any outdoor antenna, including all scanner antennas we sell. This is a safety item that should be used on all outdoor antennas. It protects against electrical shorts and lighting strikes.
A ground antenna provides a lower path to a safe discharge point. Grounding the antenna will also "drain off" electrical noise, which leaves a cleaner signal.
- 1/2" ground clamps - 3 included
- 3' 1/2" D galvanized grounding rods - 3 included
- 50' spool of 12.5 gauge aluminized steel ground wire - 1 included
Antenna grounding laws & rules vary greatly depending on the state/city you live in and your homeowners insurance policy, but this kit will have you covered. Some states do not require antenna grounding, but you are putting a metal rod on your home, which will act as a lightening magnet. We highly recommend grounding your antenna.
