My guess is your grounding a tower, at my last home I had 8 8ft copper clad ground rods spaced out around the house all cad-welded together with 500 (3/4” dia) copper stranded wire. Then as I installed an antenna on my property I just dug down and connected to the wire.

then i ran a #8 wire from there into the radio shack to facilitate any external grounding of radios,
i also put a 8' groundrod in at my electrical box on the house, eliminated alot of static and fixed my GFI from popping, apparently things would get a little "shorty" in the house.
all in all, it works fine, had several hits of lightning so far with no problems, althou i like to unhook my radio during storms, i have surge protectors on other sensitive costly stuff.
overall it makes static go away.
and makes your "ear" hear, work better.,,, next, check florescent lighting ballasts for hum. new ballasts might be in order.
