Why should I care about Lightning?

A properly designed lightning protection system provides a path for lightning to travel. The system neither attracts or repels a lightning strike but simply intercepts and guides the current harmlessly to the ground. Designing a grounding system prior to installing radios, antennas or other equipment on a roof or tower structure is critical to minimize the possibility of damage to equipment and serious injury to personnel. When in doubt, consult local and national electrical codes or contact an electrician or professional trained in the design of grounding systems.
