grounded, young man (or young lady)! Or at least
you ought to be. How many of us have an adaquate ground system and
lightning protection for our station? What is
ground system?. Tom
saw first-hand what lightning damage could do, so he decided to educate
himself to see if he could better protect his equipment and his home.
He did a lot of research, and he shared that in programs at a QCWA chapter, the Raleigh Amateur Radio Society,
and now with you.
