    Not trying to be negative, I install apts all the time but not one of them with the "on own space" restriction is ever grounded.

    I don't know what you call it, but the installer properly and quite neatly grounded it.

    Then I would say your landlord doesn't have a case.

    Winters,...
    It's not necessarily about the facts, though!

    And would you two please put in something less vague about your home 20?

    Here is an approved NEC grounding module that can be used on a balcony if you have access to power outlet outside or you could also run #17 inside and put ground block inside with #10 run to this.

    is that GFCI protected? Per NEC 210.8(a)(3) needs to be GFCI protected.

    This law better be very carefully worded because it sounds as if the law will be illegal under the FCC OTARD regulation.

    For example this requirement.
    If Sat. companies install a dish on the front of the building they most provide written explanation as to why it couldn't be put elsewhere.

    It doesn't matter if it violates FCC OTARD rules. Chicago is exempt because...well...just because.

    True... I forgot Chicago was special and didn't need to play by the rules. They could just change any they don't agree with.

    From the link:
    Easy response: "LOS". Problem solved.

    It's an easy response, but is the process to submit that easy response also easy? Or will it be a bunch of red tape to get the right "form" filled out, wait for a a response, coordinate multiple trips with DIRECTV if there are delays in the paperwork, etc.

    To me, this rule imposes a hindrance that is unnecessary.
