  1. OK, being new to base station and repeater building I have a very important question. What is the best way to ground a fiberglass antenna? To explain my setup: I will be installing a gable antenna mount which has a 6' extender pole on my single story home. The antenna is 3.7ft tall for an overall height of approximately 24.7ft above ground level. My location is 177ft above sea level which puts my antenna 201.7ft above sea level. I am on a hill which is at a higher elevation than a lot of the surrounding area. There are nearby trees which will extend to higher altitudes than my antenna. The antenna itself is grounded with a DC ground, but I need to know how to tie this in and create a proper ground. I do not wish to damage my home or radio equipment because I ignorantly installed my ground. Any and all help/recommendation is appreciated.
