RF loss during lighting strike

Started by transient 12 months ago2 replieslatest reply 12 months ago147 views

Not really DSP, but I thought that some of the HAM guys on this forum may have seen this before.


Have you every noticed when lighting strikes it causes the RF signal in a coaxile to completely drop offline for a short moment? 


Why does this happen?

How can this be prevented?


Thanks!

Hi.

Can you give us more details of exactly what you mean by "RF signal in a coaxile to completely drop offline"?
