I was under the house yesterday and decided to inspect the panel box ground since this subject has come up. I know I do not have a bond wire between my dish ground rods and the panel box. So, I plan to add that soon. It's only a 25 ft run under the house so it shouldn't be too difficult. Need to pick up some #6 Copper at Home Depot today. I also noticed there is no bond wire under the house that bonds the service panel to the meter outside. This is about a 40 ft. run and as best I can tell it is only connected with the primary 200 amp service neutral. The meter box is grounded to its own ground wire / rod. I have about 3 volts floating on the neutral in the house at the Home theater and I wonder if not having the bond on the dish grounds has generated that. I always felt that was just inductance.
