FYI, never ground to a gas line, and not to pvc water, or sewer line. Steel 
water pipe is okay. Our power box has a ground rod, which is a 8 to 10 foot 
steel rod about one inch diameter, plated with copper, pounded straight 
into the ground, with a special clamp attached to the top end, where you 
can screw down the end of a copper wire, and it has such a wire coming down 
from the power box. A HAM radio is grounded to such a rod. But please talk 
to the HAM radio store guys. They're very knowledgeable.
Thanks for responding. I will not ground to a gas line; I have a deep 
appreciation for natural gas. The office is grounded to the copper plated 
rod outside.

I don't live in a tiny town or anything, but it is a smallish city (pop 
42,000). In the phone book there is not a mention of a HAM radio store. 
Hmm, is there a way I can find HAM user in town somehow? Are they listed, 
registered somewhere? I am sure we have some. HAM operators sound more 
knowledgeable than sales people at Radio Shack <g>.

Thank you.
