and requirements for the grounding electrode.
Note to CATV system installer:
This reminder is provided to call the CATV system installer's attention to
Section 820-40 of the NEC which provides guidelines for proper
grounding and, in particular, specifies that the cable ground shall be
connected to the grounding system of the building, as close to the point
