Re: ESD Protection

Well for the ESD Protection should I use a resister or a TVS(Transient voltage suppression) Diode connected to ground to drain the static buildup and what value should I get? I'm thinking I might also add a Gas Discharge Tube for added protection as well. Do you guys have any other ideas?

ESD Protection

I have made a 54 foot Dipole antenna for my RTL-SDR to receiver HF and it will be connected all the time. I want to know what I should do for ESD and Lightning protection. I will be running the cable to a ground block to ground the cable.
