When I installed my tower and grounding system, I bugged two good friends
(and PolyPhaser engineers) for help every step of the way. On the subject
of the number and position of lightning protectors for coax and control
cables, their response was:
Coax: Three suppressors per cable. One at the top of the tower, one at
the bottom of the tower where it makes the 90 degree bend to go to the
shack, and one at the ground window entering the shack.
Control Cables: Two suppressors per cable. One at the top of the tower
and one at the ground window entering the shack.
I don't have any pics of the tower suppressors, but those on the ground
window can be seen on my website under
