It is also likely for lightning to arc across even a grounded relay with
enough side strike energy to go up your coax and burn out a rig still

If storms are in the forcast here, I always take my antenna lead in coax off
any antenna relays or switches, and lay it out on the floor of the shack.

Better luck next time,
