I am going to install a series-fed, full-sized vertical for 160 in a few
weeks. What I would like to find out is the preferred method of lightning
protection (that is, shunting it to ground). There seem to be two methods:
a spark gap, and a shunt coil. What are the accepted practices for
broadcast systems these days? And yes, I am planning a set of lightning
radials with multiple ground rods, Cadweld bonding, etc.
