Grounding station vs Vertical Antenna and tower VE3SR on 28/10/18
Have a question and asking for information/opinion on using the same ground for the station equipment with the tower. Currently running a cable to the ground rod and tower, then to an additional series of grounds each 8 feet apart and 8 feet deep - 8 additional grounds.

The next issue is if I used the tower as a 160 meter shunt fed tower. Should the tower ground be separate from the station ground and the series of ground rods.

Or is it permissible to attach all ground systems beginning at the tower as a single ground system for the entire station as it is currently without a shunt fed tower
