Can't you just use shielded Cat5E cable to do this.  We use it on all tower
installs but not for CPE's.

I have been looking for Shielded Cat5e with a ground wire attached for a
long time also. I was thinking of calling belden and asking them what it
would take to make it.

I know this is something every WISP should be interested in
using. It would be great to have an outdoor rated Cat5 cable
with an attached 10awg. A reasonable price IMO for a 1000'
spool would be $200 - $250. Keep us posted if you run across
any. The smallest ground I would be comfortable using is 12awg
and we'll want to sure it is braided so the cable is not stiff.

While on this subject, is a 4' long 3/8" diameter copper ground
rod sufficient for a CPE installation? SkyWalker sells these for
less than a buck each in 100 qty. and they include a ground clamp
to attach the wire. I'm thinking about buying a 100 of them. They
also have a decent price on their 10 awg ground wire, 500' spool
for $59 but I don't know if it is solid or braided.

Ok, I am searching for cat5 with ground wire attached.

How well do you think a coax would work to ground the CPE?

It's not like I am trying to protect it from lightning (good luck)  I 
just want somewhere for the static to go.  I could break off the coax at 
the entrance to the house and bang a 4 ft ground rod in and call it 
good.  Thoughts?

Anyone know a cable maker who could attach a ground wire?
