I live in an area (SW FL ) which has an average of 90 lightning days per year. 
We really get hit hard with lightning. Is there any way to avoid a direct hit 
on an antenna by painting the antenna or coating the antenna with plastic or 
shrink tubing to remove the metal to air contact? Basically insulating the 
aluminum like an insulated wire.
