The form needs one other option ..... fill in the blank .... because I do not do any of the options on the form. I do protect my equipment.

In this brief questionnaire I am not asking what the recommended, correct, or best approach to take to protect your shack from lightning strikes is. I am only asking what reasonable precautions you take when you know a storm is imminent.
Email address *
Before a lightning storm I generally
* Disconnect the coax leading into the shack and place the unconnected end several feet from my house
* Disconnect the antenna from the radio and leave the unconnected end on the floor in the shack away from the radio
* Disconnect all my radio equipment from the house power source.
* I power down all equipment, but leave it plugged into the wall outlet.
* Do nothing. If lighning is going to strike, I can't so anthing about it, so I just hope for the best.
Have you ever had damage to your shack due to lightning? *
* Yes
* No
Send me a copy of my responses.
