That's too bad - I've always found your comments enlightening.  The only
difficulty I have with the Polyphaser book is that it assumes that the
equipment must remain on and connected at all times, and then prescribes
protective measures for that situation.  What I want to know is whether
disconnection of all conductors outside the structure is an alternative
that would provide similar, better or worse protection than leaving those
conductors connected with the full complement of protective measures.
