I've read many comments on grounding lately. Sewer pipes, etc.
I'm just a country boy. We have septic tanks and drain fields.
The septic tank is buried down about 2.0 ft to the lid, it is
made of concrete and is probably about 5 or 6 feet deep and the
same diameter. It should be full and we agree the (liquid?)
should be a good conductor. How about if I snake a heavy
ground wire into the tank and use this for a ground? Will the
concrete tank prevent good coupling to the earth?
Just a thought. It may actually be too far away to keep the RF
ground line short.
