17.Outdoor antenna grounding
– If an outside antenna is
connected to the appliance, be sure the antenna system
is grounded so as to provide some protection against
voltage surges and built up static charges. Article 810 of
the National Electrical Code
ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information with respect to proper grounding of the
mast and supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in
wire to an antenna discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode. See Figure.
– An outside antenna system should not be
located in the vicinity of overhead power lines or other electric
light or power circuits, or where it can fall into such power lines
or circuits. When installing an outside antenna system, extreme
care should be taken to keep from touching such power lines
or circuits as contact with them might be fatal.
– Do not connect other audio equipment
with a power consumption larger than that specified to
the AC outlet on the rear panel.
Never connect other
electrical appliances, such as an iron or toaster, to it to
prevent fire or electric shock.
– Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords,
or integral convenience receptacles as this can result in a risk
of fire or electric shock.
– Do not use attachments not recommended by
the appliance manufacturer as they may cause hazards.
22. Replacement parts
