So, Lynyrd, did you run a long ground wire from the Talking House to a ground rod or was the ground connection supplied by the AC power supply your ground connection? I’m curious as the “long ground” factor always comes up in these discussions.
I would guess that putting the Talking House up in the rafters would require some type of separate AC outlet run for that purpose or a long extension cord. In either case a fairly vertical run of wire to a grounding point like the power service box.
In a house, the AC ground connection through the power supply would be mostly horizontal runs and probably not more than 30 feet long.
It’s interesting to hear of someone else that ran the antenna wire through the roof. I mentioned hearing of someone doing this in another thread here about running an antenna lead in just long enough to go through an outside wall.
