Earthing my new SDRPLAYduo

Post by Nickyb » Fri Jun 29, 2018 10:48 am


I have received my new SDRPLAYduo for my office. I currently have a long wire antenna going to an earthed manual antenna tuner box, then out
from UHF to a SMA connector to the duo.

Do I need to earth the duo? Maybe running a ground wire from the HIGH Z (ground pin) to a suitable earth?

Would this help with ground and increase signal quality at all? As mentioned the tunnel box does have a separate earth.

Hope someone can advise

I have mine tied to the station ground, which is a eight foot ground rod, and that ground rod is tied to the service entrance ground for electrical. Multiple grounds, not tied together, scare me.
