Tower Time – Lightning suppression

Well spring has sprung and with it time to turn my attention to lightning suppression.


During the research phase on the tower project I encountered much data, recommendations, and techniques on the subject of grounding. A simple internet search will provide you with as much information as you care to delve into. After a fair amount of research a few common themes come into view.

  • Ground everything by bonding everything together.
  • Provide many distributed low impedance paths to earth.
