And just to be careful, you might also point out that 6 foot 'stub' would only be for an 11 meter antenna's feed line. It would have to be a different length for different bands so not usable on multi-band antennas.
I think those lightning arrestors shown in post #31 have been around almost forever, and can't 'arrest' lightning at all, at least not soon enough to help. I've only taken one apart so the one shown could be different (wouldn't bet on it though). They are 'spark-gap' type arrestors.
