Hi all,

Here is a link to CT Member “Enthusiastic Steve’s” YouTube Channel. “Enthusiastic Steve”
Steve has a lot of good content on all things Radio. Always interesting and well presented. 

Steve post’s regularly in the Facebook group and I have asked him to post here. However as he hasn’t I’m doing it for him, lol.

Nice share there Paddy. Check out our Very own “Enthusiastic Steve” 1f44d

I've seen Steve's videos via the links on Facebook but good to let the forum members know about his enthusiastic work.

Thanks Victor,

Did you manage to see that short one he did in the storm where his antenna coax was cackling away in his car? A real eye opener.

I did Paddy and I hope it was an 'eye opener' for many.

That was a clear example of static electricity at work and how you can receive 'shocks' from antennas and even suffer damage to a radio without even being struck by lightning or miles from a storm!

Physicists are still arguing how lightning forms and strikes even today with most assumptions being based on Benjamin Franklin's experiments in the 1750's!!! 


I'm a firm believer in the static discharge method of protection utilising lightning arrestors such as spark-gaps, gas discharge and sintered block materials, (the basis for many commercial lightning 'protection' methods). 

There are however proponents of finding the thickest wire you can muster and attaching it to a copper pipe/rod half-arsed driven into the ground. Wink

I certainly wouldn't want to be driving around in a storm with a big lightning rod, (ahem, antenna), atop my vehicle!


Unfortunately Paddy we live in such a light polluted world nowadays that many have never experienced the visual effects of such phenomena. The dancing purple/blue sparks that showered your body when undressing or putting on bed clothes at night let alone St. Elmo's fire glowing on the ends or tips of structures. Except maybe us old farts with childhood memories from that far less lit up night world. Very Happy
