We just purchased a 1400 square foot home in Richland, WA. It was built in 1948 and has come across at least 3 generations of wiring jobs. We had an electrician provide a bid to rewire the house. The basic idea is that the current wiring will be abandoned in place. They will bring the house up to current standards which basically requires an entire new system from the service connection on. This should be a good opportunity to add some ham radio flair behind the walls. What would you suggest? About the only add-on so far is several CAT 6 plug-ins. Should I add a convenient ground connection to the shack in the basement?

TL;DR – Rewiring the house… special ham radio considerations?
