I see a lot of talk about lightning protection for our antennas/receivers etc but was wondering if anyone has actually suffered a strike directly to their gear? I don’t have any protection yet other than the non-conductive pvc tube containing the antenna and my pi is connected to my home network wirelessly. It’s not good to risk it of course but I would like to hear others stories.
