13.Outdoor Antenna grounding-If an outside antenna or
cable system is connected to the TV/VCR, be sure the
antenna or cable system is grounded so as to provide some
protection against voltage surges and built-up static
charges. Article 810 of the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA No. 70, provides information with respect to
proper grounding of the mast and supporting structure,
grounding of the lead-in wire to an antenna discharge unit,
size of grounding conductors, location of antenna-discharge
unit, connection to grounding electrodes, and requirements
for the grounding electrode. (Fig. A)

antenna system, extreme care should be taken to keep from
touching such power lines or circuits as contact with them
might be fatal.
16.Overloading-Do not overload wall outlets and extension
cords as this can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
17.Object and Liquid Entry-Never push objects of any kind
