I have the experience with 150 m high T-ant. All the antenna works I did
with the antenna grounded (you can see some details at
http://www.sweb.cz/ok1fig/gallery.htm). Once I had to disconnect it and
connect again to my small loading coil. It only burned slightly in my hand,
nothing serious happened. No fireworks. I even did dare to connect RX EKD300
directly to loading coil, without any attenuation (normally I used 36 or 48
dB). RX survived and there was only a slight cross-modulation.
But I am sure I wouldn't be so brave during summer period...

I wonder what did happen when those brave souls disconnected
from ground the Decca mast at Puckeridge last year ?? :-)
