The likelihood of the outdoor antenna being hit by lightning is very slim indeed. The majority of the housing is plastic, and there are safety components installed that will burn out like fuses in the off-chance that lightning should hit the unit. The unit may be damaged and need to be replaced, but it will prevent the lightning from harming your computer. If you’re concerned about this issue, we suggest that you install an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), and run all equipment through it. Contact Webformix for more information or if you’d like for us to install a recommended UPS.
