If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to
your TV, make sure that the antenna or cable system is
grounded to provide some protection against voltage
surges and built-up static charges. Article 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides
information with respect to correct grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in
wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of the antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.
Note to CATV system installer
Article 820 of the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA
No. 40 provides guidance for correct grounding.
