My newly installed 40 foot crank up tower is more or less 280 feet away
from a 120 feet tall wood post holding a VHF omni commercial antenna.
Will this high structure protect in a way my crank-up from direct
lightning hits? or
to rephrase the question were there studies done to determine the radius
or area of a land that can be safely protected by a single high grounded
tower with lightning rod?
