The answer to both questions is...yes.  Despite all our endevors to 
protect our equipment, we do get the occassional strike, and have to 
replace some equipment. In my opinion, good insurance from lightning is...
GOOD INSURANCE.  The cost of good insurance coverage is minimal when 
compared to replacing broadcast ( and amateur) equipment. Take it from 
me, I'm the CEO of a company that owns and operates 3 commercial FM 
broadcasting stations.

Good Luck!
