Antenna Grounding Questions

Hi, I am getting ready to install an antenna on the gable of my house and I have a couple of ground wire questions.

1. Can the ground wire be stapled to the fascia of the house or are there special clips or standoffs?

2. Is there any code requirements requiring the ground wire be kept a certain distance from the coaxial cable?

Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.

It needs to be securely attached, so staples aren't sufficient. No special standoffs are required. Use clips sizes for the wire.

2. Is there any code requirements requiring the ground wire be kept a certain distance from the coaxial cable?
AFAIK, no.
