Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: Fm antenna ground question

Well, we don't get lightning much where I live just south of SF. I remember one day with a lot of lightning fifteen years ago. Wow, that was fun, though we don't usually get really close hits where I am, which is underneath trees, but also on the side of a hill with more tree on top.

I think you should ground it. I'm waiting to get around to grounding mine SOMEDAY. I usually disconnect it from my tuner during a storm figuring I'm more disposable than my tuner ;-)

Is that a power line right over your antenna? I think you should have a grounding block installed. I also do use a Monster power strip with antenna an arrester for the TV and I wonder whether that is sufficient even for the tuner? That would be a halfway measure IMO.
