PATCHOGUE, N.Y.
Would anyone have an input into the correct way to ground a satellite dish? (small) I work at an industrial site and to run a solid insulated #10 back to the water main would unreal. This particular building has a wood frame. Is the ground wire allowed to be ran to an existing sub panel, or does it have to go to a ground rod? The dish will be on a roof, which would have a very long run to a ground rod. I want to stay within the code. I know a lot of dish people don't follow the NEC like we do. The sub panels are fed with metal jacketed BX cable. Thanks
