I don't understand this at all. Where is the 8' measured from? How does this differ from 230-24b. Then 225-19a goes on to further confuse me by saying "vertical clearance in all directions" what other direction is there for vertical besides up and down?

Sometimes the NEC can be so ambiguous that it reminds me of the metaphors in the Bible..

Yeah, like the Bible, the NEC can be interpreted in different ways.... should we start different denominations? (not meant to blaspheme in any way)...

Yeah, we could have the Tedescan denomination of the saints of upwardly facing U grounds, the Thompsonian denomination of metallic raceways, The Kellinian denomination of the brothers against #14 guage wire, the Stevian apostles of grounding and bonding, etc, etc...

All in good fun guys...

Don'tKnow;

they mean that 8' must be maintained in a 3' area around the drop, some roofs have a pitch where the 8' might not always work...

"and deliver us some e-mail, amen!"

My Momma helped Jim and Tammy Faye buy their dog an air conditioned dog house with 10% of her check every month...

You just never know how much dough might flow in!

Side note to: Don'tKnowEverythingYet,

Have you been trying to send me E-Mail in the last week or so??

My ISP is being screwey with E-Mail, so who knows what I have missed

Drop a line here [in this thread] with a Yeh, or a Nay.
