Outdoor Dish Antenna Grounding
The outdoor dish antenna used to receive satellite signals and the cable used to connect the outdoor dish antenna to the indoor receiving unit are required to comply with local installation codes and the appropriate sections of the National Electrical Code (NEC), especiallyArticles 250, 810 and 820. These codes require proper grounding of the metal structure of the outdoor dish antenna and grounding of the connecting cable at a point where it enters the house (or other building). If you are having a professional installer make the installation, the installer must observe installation codes in making the installation. The DSS® System Self-Installer’s Kit containsinstructions on how to make the installation in compliance with the National Electrical Code (NEC). If additional local installation codes apply, contact local inspection authorities.
