 to bleed off static like builds up on verticals from wind or
 precipitation try either a large inductor to ground across the
 insulator, or a 1/4 wave shorted coax stub.  the stub of course
 has the advantage of also being a bandpass filter.  a large 
 sparkgap like is used on broadcast towers only is really good 
 for lightning strikes.
