I employ AS-303 lighting protection   Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I live on a mountain where there are many thunderstorms and lighting strikes to my 70 ft tower or to my many Beverage Antennas. I used other commercial brand arrestors which became problematic, each time I was hit with a lighting strike the arrestors had to be replaced. The rate destruction causd by lighting was killing my radio amateur budget. The solution to the problem was purchasing Array Solutions AS-303 Surge Arrestor which solved the problem. I cannot say enough about this little unit, it does a great job.

Love it so far  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I have only had this unit for a few weeks, but it seems to be working as designed. On 160 the rig on this unit enjoys a noticeably lower noise level than the radio on the "brand X" suppressor. It does seem to bleed off the static via the inductor as the ads claim it to do. As far as power handling, I regularly run an 8877 at legal limit in mostly contest mode, it has never missed a beat. 58 dollars for Array Solutions quality, this is a bargain.
You will not be disappointed with this one.
