LIGHTNING & STATIC
For mobile applications
the coaxial connector at your radio, install the arrestor
and reconnect the coaxial cable. Then, run a copper ground wire
from the connector housing to ground. The ground wire offers
a low resistance path that will allow atmospheric static and
electrical charges to be totally or partially bled off to
ground. Redirecting these interfering charges will reduce and/or
eliminate much of the hissing and popping noise heard in the receiever.
The bleed may also save damage to the receievr circuits. The AR-10
should be used with CB's, amatuer radio equipment,
scanners, and other antenna utilizing devices.
For base station applications
the coaxial connector at your antenna, install the arrestor and
reconnect the coaxial cable. Then, run a copper ground wire from
the connector housing to earth ground. For best results, we recommend
that the ground wire be at least 10 guage copper and that the
connector is soldered to the wire to protect against corrosion
causing resistance. Also, for best results it is best to use
a copper grounding rod that has been driven into the earth several
feet. Copper ground rods are readily available at most home improvement
stores or farm supply businesses.
