Amateur Radio Antenna Lightning Protection. Post 1942.

Every Amateur Radio Operator should have lightning and static electricity protection as outlined in this well-made, to-the-point video from "North Carolina Prepper."

The video takes us through basic lightning and grounding procedures that will shield your equipment from static charges and lightning strikes near your QTH.

In addition to the above steps, I'm able to lower my vertical antennas and disconnect all feed lines after use.  A little prevention now will save you grief later.
