Greetings ham friends, 
In the installation of a really good ground and lightning 
protection system in connection with my new shack, I 
have become curious. 
In addition to all the peripheral ground busses, SPG’s, 
ICE/Polyphaser units, radial systems, it seems that I 
have heard that it might be wise to install closed loops 
of copper buss in the walls of the shack, particularly 
if the shack is really close to your 85 foot tower 
and stack. 
Do(es) this loop(s) add anything to the protection?  Where 
would such a loop(s) be connected?  To the SPG?  Any 
chance such a loop could set the house on fire? 
Thanks in advance, Al;  ex-ZM1BL
