    I have five model LAC-1 Blitz Bugs made by Cushcraft (in the 1960's). These are coaxial lightning arresters;
    they are the "low tech" static gap discharge type; not the gas tube type that is the modern standard.
    They have one UHF male and one UHF female connector.

    These are all "new" in the original packaging with the exception of one which is new
    but not attached to any packaging. All appear to be made of alumunum stock except for one which
    must have been an earlier build and has a nickel steel body.

    The packaging blurb on a LAC-2 (same patent as the LAC-1) says:
    1 KW fully modulated power handling at SWR of 2 to 1 or less
    Good to 500 MC (MHz)
    No insertion loss

    Price is $5 each plus shipping. Pay with USPS Money Order or Paypal.
