Re: Grounding and antenna diagram - appreciate comments If I understand you correctly, bond the antennas to the metal pole, but do not connect a ground wire to the antennas and run it down the pole. Bond bottom of pole to buried ground wire as in your diagram.
After reading some comments here on DSLreports, I have decided to skip the LMR-600 and go with Andrew Heliax LDF4-50 assuming I can get it at a decent price. I have been researching cables and all of the various connectors...I don't see how you all keep it straight. It seems every brand and every size cable has a different prep. tool plus different ways to attach the connectors.
JG, thank you VERY much for your help.
