Dave, KO4DLQ, lives in Florida and has to deal with mass amounts of lightning. Dave can relate having served there for several years when he was younger. His main problem is that his shack is on the other side of the house as his utility ground, and he needs to know how to set up his grounding system to be most safe and efficient. Dave has an Idea that involves the concrete patio in front of Dave’s house.
