Cables attach to the tower with "beam clamps" below.
Grounding of the feedline is important for adequate protection from lightning.
Feedline grounding kits are available from most of the suppliers listed
below, that will attach to our extensive ground system . Additional
lightning protection can be realized by using an "inline" protector, such
as shown below.
These are made by Polyphaser
It is also important to properly weatherproof the feedline connection to
the antenna. Shown below is a typical jumper-to-feedline connection
that has been properly weatherproofed. In addition, properly marking
your feedlines on both ends is necessary to identify cables.
