Re: Cyclone fence for ground

Original poster: Vardan <vardan01@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>


Drive the ground rod!! That fence is probably more of an antenna than a ground and you don't want 3000 people to be able to grab it!! It is probably chain link where every "connection" is heavily coated with zinc oxide... Depending on the size of the coil and the soil, the ground rod can probably be pretty minor.

I attend a rockfest every july, that I just got back from.
I was going to take one of my coils, and run it in the
festival camp I stay in. Time etc., didn't allow me to
do that (probably a good thing, since there was a
fire ban). Anyway, there is a cyclone fence bordering
the campground for probably over a 1/4 mile, and 8 feet tall.
Do you guys think this would be an effective, and most
importantly, a safe ground. Any chance of someone being
shocked down the fenceline. It would certainly be easier than
driving a ground rod.
