Grounding //

Provide a copper bus plate minimum 6 in x 18 in x 0.5 in [150 mm x 450 mm x 13 mm], with a connection point located on the inside wall within the immediate area of the antenna coaxial cable(s) entrance conduit sleeves.

Connect this plate to the lightning protection system with a minimum #1/0 AWG stranded copper wire, or increased sized connection device (i.e., strap, buss, etc.) as approved by the RE, to maintain the integrity of the lightning protection system so each of the system antenna cables’ coaxial cable lightning protectors can be installed and connected to the plate.
