    Looks like my Log Periodic. Don't ground it. Just follow the code.

    Sounds like an oxymoron to me. Code requires any antenna circuit to be bonded. The picture you show is 100% correct. Perhaps I missed your point.

    All I know is I'm moving to Brazil. I don't care, I'll live on the beach if I have too.

    Check AMAZON for COAXIAL GROUNDING CONNECTORS. I see a lot of F connectors shown but if you scroll down the list you will see some for PL-259 connections...

    I have three or four antennas on my house roof so I use one of those ground connectors that has multiple PL259 connectors on it. I use this bank right before the RG cables enter the house and run a ground wire down to a 6-foot ground rod into the earth...

    I can always adapt most Ham RG cables to the TYPE - N ground adapters...

    Since it is almost impossible to find a Radio Shack Store anymore I order everything I need from AMAZON PRIME. Comes to my mail box in two days...
