I have installed a grounding rod on the outside of my shack, but I can find hardly any information, Logically the IC-7300 should be grounded, but what else? Also, as I have a 6M vertical antenna, I want to install a lightning arrester, but again where do I look for information? I passed my Foundation in March this year and am just trying to do things right.

Hi, i have the same thought. Outside my workshop where my antenna is mounted vertically, I have put a ground cable to a Copper dod which was driven into the ground. A copper cable also comes from my G90 and is tapped into the Copper rod with a bronze screw.

I should add the cable is fastened to the mounting pole.
