Has anyone been able to withstand a direct lightning strike? We had a tower get hit last night, and some of our equipment lost Ethernet ports (RB/433AH), and we lost 3 canopy APs, but that is all (considering what is all up there only 2/3rds was blown). Our Trango AP survived and a RB/433AH

I too disagree on the electrical tape. An old installer taught me that 9 - 12 lengths of insulated solid #8 wire makes great bundle ties. Before the climb, he cuts a bunch of them to length, stuffs them in his pouch. On the way back down, every five feet or so he will take the wire around

I have not seen any zip ties hold up. Even the supposedly uv rated ones. The BEST I've seen so far (learned this from an old time linesman) is to use a big, uv rated zip tie to hold things. Wrap that with good quality electrical tape to keep the sun off of it. Or just do like the old timers.
