Power Lines - An outdoor antenna should be located away from
Outdoor Antenna Grounding - If an outside antenna is connected
to the receiver, be sure the antenna system is grounded so as
to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up
static charges. Section 810 of the National Electrical Code,
