Microwave Grounding - 2010

Since the repair of the microwave tower grounding system MGIO and Duffek have implemented a yearly check of the ground impedance. The specification we need to meet is 25 ohms or less. Again, with another year of service, three in total, we are experiencing a total of 1 ohm which is only a .5 ohm increase since the fix. It is apparent that the fix is working well.
