If an indoor antenna is used (either built into the set or installed
separately), never allow any part of the antenna to touch the metal
parts of other electrical appliances such as a lamp, TV set etc.
Any outdoor antenna must be located away from all power lines.
OUTDOOR ANTENNA GROUNDING
If an outside antenna is connected to your tuner or tuner-
preamplifier, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as to
provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No.
70-1984, provides information with respect to proper grounding of
the mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding conductors, location of
antenna discharge unit, connection to grounding electrodes and
requirements for the grounding electrode.
a. Use No. 10 AWG (5.3mm2) copper, No. 8 AWG (8.4mm2)
aluminium, No. 17 AWG (1.0mm2) copper-clad steel or bronze
wire, or larger, as a ground wire.
b. Secure antenna lead-in and ground wires to house with stand-off
insulators spaced from 4-6 feet (1.22 - 1.83 m) apart.
c. Mount antenna discharge unit as close as possible to where lead-
in enters house.
d. Use jumper wire not smaller than No.6 AWG (13.3mm2) copper,
or the equivalent, when a separate antenna-grounding electrode
is used. see NEC Section 810-21 (j).

CODE INSTRUCTIONS CONTAINED IN ARTICLE 810 - RADIO AND
NOTE TO CATV SYSTEM INSTALLER: This reminder is provided to
call the CATV system installer's attention to Article 820-40 of the
National Electrical Code that provides guidelines for proper
grounding and, in particular, specifies that the ground cable ground
shall be connected to the grounding system of the building, as close
to the point of cable entry as practical.
