There are volumes of information available on what we believe lightning is and how we think it works, most of it beyond the scope of this modest textbook. We will indulge in a form of pragmatism focusing on a practical approach to equipment protection at a communications site during a lightning “event.” The science of grounding (earthing) for lightning events encompasses both the laws of physics and RF design. Throughout this textbook are proven concepts, which will protect your valuable equipment from direct or induced lightning damage. Whether your equipment is at radio site, pipe line, utility sub station, telephone central office, maritime, military, or sensitive security installation, the same requirements apply for protection devices, proper device placement, and earth grounding.
