My principle QTH is a rural area and there is no need for me to bury the
feed lines and control lines for aesthetic reasons, but is there another
reason? I have several one hundred foot runs and I was thinking, why not
just leave them on top of the ground? If there is a concern about animals
eating the cables (?) I can just have a run of PVC on top of the ground with
the cables inside.

Or is there a compelling reason to bury? RFI? Lightning protection?

Thanks in advance,

Bruce, K1MY
