|I am new to the Ham world, just receiving my license in November. I opted to get a Kenwood mobile radio to use also as a base to be versatile. With that, I also purchased a Comet vehicle antenna to serve both the vehicle and base needs. The thing that I cannot understand is how to protect the equipment with a ligthing surpressor. I certainly know why it is needed, but in terms of installing one in my configuration I cannot find much information. Do I need one, where best should it be placed, and what would be a good surpressor are all things that I could use help on.
