[TowerTalk] Lightning arrestor in towers

I just wonder if I can get some input.
I was thinking putting a "stick (conducting)" on top of my tower well above 
 any other installation. Connect the "stick" to a heavy wire that is well  
grounded in the other end. The idea is that a lightning preferable will hit  
the "stick" and be safely conducted to the ground similar what you do with 
a  house.
A few days ago I did have a hit on my house and the lightning protection  
worked except for a surge protector and a battery charger located near the  
corner that was hit. Everything else survived.
