Base Antenna Grounding and Lighting protection



Can anyone with a Base station setup tell me about your grounding and lighting protection? 

  Should I put a lighting arrestor at the base of the antenna then connect the cable?

 Put lightning arrestor between two runs of cable?



I am considering installing a Tram Browning BR-6140 fiberglass antenna in the roof.

Lightning arrestor on the coax is an ideal, with short run of #8 wire to the ground rod nearby, but check local codes!

Grounding mast and shield of the coax is a bare minimum, to discharge static electricity, that builds up just from wind blowing. It's not up to electrical codes, though.
