I have pounded in 11 eight foot ground rods. (Not an easy feat in "The Granite State") 2' burried 200' of the finest tinned #2 Georgia Copper around the house. Connected everything to a single point ground inspired by the Motorola R56 handbook. Run all cabling through lightning surge protection before it enters the building. Connected utilities properly to said single point ground. ....and at the slightest sound of thunder or at the advice of the National Weather Guesser forcast, I completely disconnect every wire from my equipment and roll the radio desk 2' away from the bitter ends. There are various remnant reminders of the effects of lightning over the years on the 90' pine vegetation within sight of my porch. Do you do the "Thunder Dance" around your shack too?
