Any suggestions on how to best protect a rotor from indirect lightning 
strikes?  In the past two months I have suffered two indirect lightning 
strikes and in both cases it has taken out the reed switch in my M2 
Orion 2800.  I have a spare but it's getting expensive having the guy 
come out and swap them out.  Just curious what others do to help protect 
their rotors.  I know there nothing that's going to protect it 100% of 
the time but if there's something I can do to lessen the chance of 
something like this happening again I'm all for it.
