My question involves grounding rods and how to use them. My coax is coming down on the north side of my house, so I need to install a grounding block there. I was thinking of bringing the ground from the antenna down there as well and attaching them both to a new grounding rod. Then I would need to run another wire from this new grounding rod, to the grounding rod for the entire house electrical system...at least according to other threads that I've read on here and elsewhere. That other grounding rod is around the corner on the east side of my house and is about 37 feet away from where I would be installing the new one. Anyway, my question is, does that wire that's connecting the two grounding rods need to be buried? If so, how deep?

If it is up against the foundation, there is no minimum depth. The significance of burying it at least a foot deep is to prevent accidental damage from/to rototillers, etc.
