See my links below.laajr said:I have a Slimline installation scheduled in 3 weeks. I currently have one of the 18" SD dishes that I installed ~10 years ago. The dish location (both new and old) are located ~80' from the house service panel/ground.
I installed a grounding rod next to my current dish and grounded the dish and grounding block to this grounding rod. The dish is located 6" from the side of the house. I have a raised floor foundation and have copper water pipes (cold water pipe is grounded to service ground).
After reading through all the grounding topics, it seems that I have a floating ground and I am wondering if I should connect to my cold water pipe in some form. Running a ground to the service panel is not possible because of the terrain around the house.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
