National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70,
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. See
