I'm getting ready to add a second dish. Can i use the same split bolt on my house ground to ground both dishes?

I'm sure this may start yet ANOTHER great debate, but technically...no. Each groundblock HAS to have it's own groundwire ran to it's own groundlub/split-bolt.

Do I agree with that idea? No. Only reason why I'm stating this is that Dish is on a total rampage with grounding as of late and even the practice of groundwires sharing the same groundlub/split-bolt has come under fire.

Not dish specific, but a grounding question since we are talking about it. I'm fixing to put an OTA antenna on my roof and run a cable in down my siding and then through the window. I will probably need an amp, and I'm looking at one with a power inserter so that the amp is up by the antenna. Do most grounding blocks pass that power properly?

Huh?

Unsure what you are asking, I am, said Yoda.

If you mean a coaxial ground block then yes it should since it is on the grounded side of the system.

I thought so, but couldn't find anything specifically saying it would or wouldn't work. In ascii heres what it will look like.
