I have read that placing the tower further away from the house reduces the effect on the house, its occupants, and its installed electronic devices of the huge magnetic field generated if/when the tower gets hit by lightning.

I'm in the planning stage of a tower. Do I put it near the house or farther away? Do elements from the antenna come off and pierce the roof? I've had terrible nightmares in the past with tower installations, although nothing never happened. I have a rather small lot, need to put the tower close to the house. Will be putting up a guy-less tower, but will be using guys anyway. Am I overly cautious or dealing with paranoia.........Tom N4RS
