Thunderstorms

Comments Off

[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.
