Wow, what bad luck. I would also be interested in a satellite TV protection
device. I imagine that lightning would hit the tower instead of the dish,
but it wouldn't hurt to have some added protection.

Also before I even got any towers up last summer, we got nailed with a
lightning hit that came through the Direct TV and took out our 60 inch
which was two days old. Any place to get a Polyphaser for this that won't
break the bank? I believe Direct uses around 1.2 gHz.
As always thanks for the help. I bet I get a usable answer in an
