Grounding: Don’t Get Zapped!

At the April 2014 CMRA meeting Mac, K4CHS, gave an informative talk on grounding. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to view the accompanying slides due to technical difficulties. It was recommended that the slides be made available to all on this site. Thanks to Don, KM0R, for converting Mac’s presentation into PDF format. You can view the slides with or without notes by clicking on the links below. Each link will open a new window in your browser.
