Theoretical considerations of lightning phenomena and the effects of the magnetic, capacitive, and resistive components of lightning-induced voltages are discussed. A typical tracking station is analyzed from a lightning standpoint. Specific protective methods are discussed, including the implementation of high-surge-current voltage clippers for sensitive electrical and electronic circuits, grounding, counterpoises, and bonding. The safety of operating personnel is also treated as a prime consideration.
