Lighning strikes on amateur equipment.

I found the following on Southgates excellent site. But take a look at the vertical.

Link to modern hit, with shattered antenna.

Link to 1922 strike story.

The above stories are both from Elyria, Ohio. USA. But are worth reading & as for the photo in the top story......Thats amazing.
