I have a friend (will not say his call sign) who believes that if you can't
do a full grounding system (building halo, rods every 16 ft, etc) is is
better NOT to ground your antenna system and just disconnect your coax when
not used.  Sort of the "lightning does not see me" idea.   While I have
argued this issue with him I was looking for technical documentation why his
reasoning is false.  Any information to disclaim the no ground and antenna
disconnect practice ?
