JO>Nelson, you might check with your Electrical Power company. KCP&L will
JO>install surge protection at the meter and guarantee at replacement value
JO>any electronics items that are damaged. I believe the cost is around
JO>$4.95 per month plus tax. You may have something similar in your area.
that is... protection from a surge coming in on the electric company
If the surge came in from the ham radio tower and a marginal ground
and destroyed much electronic equipment, The claim to the power company
may be contested......
P.S. I like the idea of power company applied surge arrestors for
surges coming down the power lines. I am going to look into that...
