Agree 100% with Tim.
Worry more about the surge in the power supply.
The surge protector you use for your power to the Procaster, computer and any processing gear should not just have a light that tells you if the surge protection is working but if the surge protection is compromised the power bar should shut down instantly cutting power to your stuff like a fast acting fuse.
These are harder to find but are available. These types of power bars would protect you if lightning made a direct hit and it states this on the package.September 1, 2020 at 8:08 am #115704Horatio CaineParticipant

The one I have has the “Overload” power bar and power bar for battery power. Nice APC Brand.
I guess there is no real protection from lighting. Had a house over the weekend hit by lightning near my area.
I like Tim’s idea, but I’ve worked and been a commercial broadcast station owner. I understand series feed towers and towers with folded unipoles on them. Mine hade a unipole. Rumor was feeding the tower with a unipole was to help with lighting protection. That’s a understatement.
Sonn as I get my Procaster back from the factory, I’m thinking it’s not so much height, it’s the ground, like in commercial ground systems, but on the flip side, the commission hasn’t approved that to my knowledge.
