IMO you are better off installing the lightning protection as the
coax enters the house than at the antenna switch. The coax that runs
from the switch to the house could pick-up an induced spike therefore
bypassing your protection. You also save the need for three devices.
If you use a wired switch, make sure you have protection for the
control wires too. I use ICE 303 on the coax and 348 on the control
wire. Polyphaser has units too that will do both.
