Lighting protection overview

I found this 15 page article on one of my forums. It gives a number of considerations for protection.

Here's a really good article on lighting protection. Newer construction is less susceptible as PVC water pipes they use now are non-conductive so ground path to your home is quite a bit less likely.

Also, a friend of mine is an ex-Harris installation engineer and recommends you loop all cables. Lightning doesn't like to go in a circle. He's got installations worldwide with huge towers that he's done and they've never had a problem with lighting. But they put a ground loop around the building too like this article recommends along with cable loops.
