[Today’s run: YMCA to SFMarket 7 miles]
This evening we are getting a good dose of thunderstorms. We have had hail and lots of rain and some sessions of wind.
With my G5RV antenna at 20 ft. I just detach the feedline at the window feed-through. I do the same with my outside VHF vertical.
I know that once I get my tower up I’m going to have to get more serious about lightning arresters and such. I think I will need a couple of ground rods at the base of the tower. If I use metallic guys I’ll need ground rods at the base of every guy. Then I will need a ground rod at the feed-through.
The ARRL Antenna Book covers this information quite a bit. I’ll have to dig it out and see what needs to be done.
