We're hot on the 'puter' tonight ain't we mj [Linked Image] All our requirements here are the same as yours except the minimum branch circuit. We can run 15 amp. for the general lighting.

does your electrical board require proven 25 ohms or less for said G-rod?

we do not test for the 25 ohms or less, that is a good point. maybe we souuld require a second rod to assure the 25 ohm requirment. thanks, i will bring up that matter to my next board meeting.
