But realistically, say you have a choice between two options:
Protector at tower + protector at house
Grounding Switch at house + protector at house
and they cost the same?
I think the switch+protector might be a better investment: the switch
protects the rig when you're not using it, the protector protects it
when you are, but not as well;There's a difference between shorting the
input(the switch) and just clamping to 100 volts (the protector)
