I've read quite a bit about lightning protection. That said and fully understanding lightning has a mind of it's own, I am trying to mitigate a strike to my mast, which is obviously a great lightning rod. My mast is a steel guyed 30 foot telescoping. The steel guys are encased in a plastic sleeve. The mast sits in the ground app 6 inches deep. Pics attached of how I ground the mast. Essentially, I do not want the lightning strike to jump from the mast to my house which is 25 feet away. The photo shows sold copper wire attached to the mast with hose clamps, giving what I feel is good contact for 5 to 6 inches. I use 4 four foot ground rods spaced at 1 foot, 3 foot, 5 foot and 8 foot from the mast base also secured with hose clamps. On a side note, I have considered stripping back some of the plastic on the steel guys and ground a few also. Big question: is this effective enough or is there a better way.
