Eh, well...Folks like Polyphaser have been making and selling lightning arrestors to the broadcast industry for years. And those folks *usually* keep on transmitting, despite lightning and thousand foot tall antenna towers, 24x7.

They have white papers available online. they won't stop everything every time. But they sure can improve your odds when compared to just doing nothing.
LOL, but I doubt those are made from spark plugs.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
