On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being "I'll shoot my eye out" and one being "go ahead and give him the BB gun", how much should I worry about an ungrounded antenna in my attic.
I have professionally installed lightning rods all over my roof. But I am
told even a near strike can charge the antenna and fry my system. That's never happened to any other equipment in my house tied to the cable TV or phone system in 4 years in the lightining capital of the western hemishere, central Florida.
The more I learn, the more I realize that I don't know a lot more than I thought I didn't know.
