Subject: RE: [TowerTalk] Lightning, surge protection
An old radio tech trick: put 1/8 amp fuses in line with your telephone =
(one in line with each wire). The fuses will virtually always blow =
any equipment on the line can be damaged.
About 8 years ago, our phone line was aerial on the power poles coming =
to our property. One of the poles took a direct hit- it literally blew =
phone cable off of the pole and burned it in half. The only thing I lost =
the 1/8 amp fuses...
