My Pi is on its 4th power supply in 3 months. The power supply keeps failing and I am assuming this happens when there is electrical activity in the air. The antenna has not been hit directly, but we do get a lot of storms around here.
The Pi was previously connected via ethernet to my internet router, but after some electrical activity (in the sky), the router blew up (and destroyed an ethernet port on a computer also connected to the router). I have since changed to a WIFI dongle but now its the power supply that keeps going.
Is there any way I can prevent this?
I’m running Flight Aware stick and filter and 3 metre length of coax attached to a quarter wave length antenna on the top of my roof. (one like this one jeroen.steeman.org/Images/1090-quarter-wave.jpg).
Does any one have any suggestions?
