Sorry to keep pestering you fine folks with basic questions, but I'm trying to do this right the first time, without damaging equipment or personnel. "Do this right" is an oxymoron because my setup is temporary/indoor-portable, which means I'll be plugging it into a wall outlet for a couple hours while operating and then tearing it down. Fair weather only, as I will not have "proper" NEC-compliant grounding or lightning protection as one would for a permanent setup. My plan was to lay the coax on the grass running directly choke to choke (see attached diagram) and operate-- and then I made the mistake of talking to one more ham, who again mentioned the proverbial "ground the coax before it enters the shack" and also made reference to static & static draining, which I hadn't heard about or considered. In humid summer weather without convective activity, rain, or excessive wind (or blowing desert sand!)-- is static accumulation on your vertical antenna and/or coax feedline a serious issue? For a temporary/portable setup? Enough to affect or damage your radio? I thought I was pretty well covered for common-mode with a good choke on each end-- so can I simply run coax between the chokes, fire this thing up and run it? What I understand I should NOT do is, for example, pound a separate (unbonded to house ground) rod into the earth and run the coax through a PolyPhaser or similar-- which should(?) take care of lightning and also lesser static/accumulating voltage. Tempting but apparently a no-no. Also not particularly relevant, as I'm not operating in bad weather. Essentially what I'm looking for is a few of you experienced operators to take a look at the picture below and-- with the understanding that this is temporary/indoor-portable and therefore NOT kosher as far as NEC-- tell me that on a bright sunny day, barring some strange scenario, I'm unlikely to have problems with RF, have problems with static accumulation, or get zapped or zap any equipment. Put another way: On a bright sunny day, for a couple of hours, would you operate on this setup? I don't mean reckless or rolling the dice-- I mean confidence that you'd taken steps to ensure a reasonable degree of safety and effectiveness given the temporary nature of the config. If not, please tell me what you need to see in order to be comfortable. Antenna is a military kit (fiberglass sections) and tuner is an AH-4. Thanks!
