Grounding Essentials For The Shack
This months meeting of the White Mountain Amateur Radio Club will be a presentation by Ed Earny, NZ1Q. Ed’s QTH is St. Petersburg, FL but spends some time with us in FN44 during the summer.
Ed is a great speaker and a great resource for all things ham!
The topic is super relevant as we are in thunderstorm season. Lightning, AC safety ground and RF grounds – what’s the difference, what’s important about each, best practices with shack/antenna ground system examples. Also, a few facts about lightning that gives us a better chance of protecting our equipment form a direct hit or near-by electro magnetic pulse (EMP).
