Antenna Grounding & Related Offerings

David, VK3RU sent in this interesting link:

A friend in the US sent me this link which I found quite fascinating and possibly of interest to other club members.

It is written by Tom Rauch W8JI and he seems to be something of an authority on antennas, he certainly has a serious HF installation at his home in Georgia.

Tom has an extensive webpage on a range of amateur radio subjects but this link focusses on the subject of “Ground”.  Station ground, Common Mode Current, Ground Resistance Measurements, its all there and definitely worth reading.

Check out this link: W8JI station,  and be delighted with his installation and well set out topics including grounding and gear.


Another interesting QST article here…..


Thanks David for the handy link. Regards Ed.
