Member Needs Help with Antenna
I attended your
Grounding & Bonding seminar in Bowling Green, Kentucky approximately
a year and half ago. I would like to ask for your help on a problem
that we have been experiencing for the last 9 months or so.
Problem: We started
installing antennas for wireless Internet throughout our system; our problem
has been with lightning damage to the antennas. Most of these antennas have
been installed inside distribution substations and are bonding to the substation
grounding grid. We use cad-weld to bond to the grounding grid and we don't
seem to lose as many antennas in the substations as we do where antennas are
located without a good grounding grid. Other locations where we are experiencing
a high number of failed antennas are on water towers and on a distribution
utility pole. One would think the water tower would be well grounded, but
we are experiencing some problem there.
Have you had
any experience with proper grounding/bonding techniques for wireless
antennas? I would appreciate any assistance you might be able

Grounding versus Bonding, Article 250, Video
and bonding problems are at epidemic levels.
Surveys repeatedly show 90% of power quality
problems are due to poor grounding and bonding.
Electrical theory has been applied to this
difficult to understand Article, making it
easier for students to grasp the concepts
of grounding and bonding. Additionally, Mike
has color coded the graphics so you can easily
differentiate between grounding and bonding.
