Open Wire Lightning Arrestor W1VT on 3/8/11
Part of the problem with balanced transmission line is that there can be a fairly substantial RF potential along the transmission line since rarely is a balanced transmission line operated into its charecteristic impedance. Older copies of the antenna book have spark gap arrestor designs; at least one company manufactured a balanced line arrestor which used a pair of automotive spark plugs for the spark gap.
