Grounding is Important – Really

Mike, K7IR, President of SteppIR Antennas, showed me a printed circuit board from an antenna controller that a customer had sent returned.  They didn’t get a direct lightning hit, but after a small storm nearby, their antenna wasn’t working any longer. Check out the destruction of the driver chips. It’s prudent to make sure you have a strategy in  place to protect your equipment!
