- NEC requires that all feedlines entering the structure must have their shields bonded to ground at the point of entry.
- Seldom is one's shack located adjacent to the building's electrical service entrance, such that ONE ground can be used.
As Lou and MANY others have said, NEC requires all grounds be bonded to the electrical service entrance ground. In order to comply, and prepare for a tower installation, I tied my station ground and electrical service grounds together. The concept is to have all grounds be at the same potential (preferably zero), referenced to earth.

The Ground is the only one that is not allowed to carry current, unless there is a fault it should not carry current.
How many Hams have the coax entering with the Service Power ?
Very Few would be my guess. Very few meet NEC code of today and they work just fine.
