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

RE: Fm antenna ground question

We have a lot of close lightening strikes. I have everything (including very large FM antenna) I can think of grounded with 6 rods at various locations. Lots of rocks here, was pounding one rod in, it made a complete U turn and ended up coming up behind me. If I was a cartoon character it would have caught my belt and ratcheted me up at each pound.

The strikes that have caused damage have all appeared to have done so through the AC. Power supplies etc., were damaged, not the front end of FM tuners, etc. I have lightening discharge devices on the AC, but things have still gotten damaged. When possible now I unplug the devices that are the most difficult to repair/replace at the first sound of thunder.
