uh.....that ground is NOT for lightning strikes, dont know why everyone thinks that.....its for static discharge only due to clouds and other weather related activity, ground wire WAY too small for lightning.

Go ahead if you think you are right, put a HUGE ground wire on that baby directly to ground, i for sure you that lightning WILL strike it then, when otherwise it wouldnt have struck at all......if you do this you are guaranteed to lose all your directv equipment....
Once again, "partial" truths.
"Code" requires a large ground wire from the ground block.
Lightning will burn through anything it wants to, "but" a large ground wire and a low resistance to ground, "will help" reduce the damage.

thats fine that code requires it......but go on saying how "its for lightning" or "good thing the dish wasnt the highest thing on the roof because it wasnt grounded"..

thats my point, not the code
Once again, I guess you have no clue why "it's code".
It
Code:
 sure as hell isn't for static.
