Hi Guys,

Just a thought on the previous post of whether to ground or float the 
coax of a wire antenna when not in use.

If you ground, you may be attracting a lighting strike by offering an 
easy path for discharge.

If you float, the discharge may find a more convenient direct path to 
ground elsewhere.
