Grounding a dish.
Posted 25 June 2008 - 11:20 AM
Got DN installed last week and I was checking the installers work. Can you guys tell me what all needs to happen to properly ground the system?

My dish is mounted to my roof and the only wire coming off of it is the coax. The first thing the coax hits is a splitter in my crawl space which distributes the signal to 2 sets. Isn't this completely wrong?

There should also be a green 10 gaugued grounding wire, copper exposed as well, from the other end of the ground block screw to the grounding rod of the house. This connection should be made with a copper screw and nut for this example. Then the other coaxial cables can go throughout the house into the rooms providing you with satellite television enjoyment.
But there are several grounding techniques, this is the simplest one. hope it helps!!!
