Abstract

Lightning stubs are implemented on the front end of various types of RF receiver to protect the rest of the equipment from damage in the event of a lightning strike on the Antenna. This article describes a lightning protection stub that has been built in such a way that its resonant frequency can be adjusted. This feature has been previously unavailable on earlier designs.
