Protect your shack and your tower! With a lot of anecdotal grounding discussions generating more heat than light, here’s a solid approach to the best protection practices. We’ll talk about the theory behind how and why these practices work. We’ll talk about the Physics of how a lightning flash occurs and how to convince it to go elsewhere! We’ll also talk about what NASA does to protect all of their outdoor assets.
