“But no matter what the elevation of the tx and whip, and the length of the ground conductor, whether or not the whip has a DC path to the ground conductor/chassis depends on the tx system design. Even if the tx chassis has a good connection to DC earth ground, that may not prevent static charges from building up on the whip, itself — which of course is the highest point in the system, and the most susceptible to lightning effects.”
