A Quick Guide to Lightning Arrestors

by Fairview Microwave There are two basic ways electricity and electromagnetic energy can destroy a broadcast tower, microwave link, cellular base station, or any other wireless infrastructure: transient voltage spikes and lightning. Of the two, the former is the more frequent and the latter more damaging, and neither can be ignored. When lightning strikes a […]
