Can You Afford to Not Protect Your Equipment?
This easy to mount flange-type lightning protection devices can be mounted easily on a bulkhead or interconnected to your ground system.
These devices go "in-line" and are fed with standard UHF PL-259s. The device, a lightning and pulse suppressor, has UHF Female connectors on both sides. This makes this unit super-easy to interface with VHF and UHF radios and transmission lines. Each coax cable run coming into your shack should have one of these units tied into it.Thus, any ham shack can get basic lightning protection by purchasing one of these devices and locating outside on the antenna's coax path back to the shack and connecting to a properly built ground system. This will effectively shunt energy away from equipment and keep it out of the shack.
