Re: [Ultra/Lite] Serious Equipment Damage- ungrounded Rogers Cab
said by hm :Oh, I have no doubt that Rogers will immediately send someone out to ground the cable line if the OP requested that they do so, but he won't get a dime for any of the equipment that got toasted. There are simply too many variables to prove beyond a preponderance of the evidence that the ungrounded cable line was directly at fault for the loss.
Then why have codes at all? Negligence is negligence, regardless which company thinks they have carte blanche and immunity for all laws in this world.
Furthermore, it is worth pointing out that anything you can buy at a store won't protect you from a direct lightning strike. One should remember that air is one of the strongest insoluators available and lightning has already travelled several - sometimes hundreds - of kilometres through it. A dinky little "surge suppressor" isn't going to stop lightning from proceeding past it.
