Re: [TCML] Extremely LARGE spark.
Good Grief!!! I'm glad no one was hurt!!!
Allstate is not telling you that TV's commonly lose their power supply
diodes to lightning strikes some distance away, with the distance being measured
in hundreds of feet. "Ground-bounce" also plays a big factor here.
I'm wondering if we have someone on the list who is recognized as a Name in
Electrical Engineering who could write a short and extremely to-the-point
statement to Allstate for you. They may decide that fighting it is a waste of
time if you're already "lining up expert witnesses", so to speak.
Just my two cents worth. I've had my TV, and in another strike, my network
fried from strikes. Lordee, when I was at T I - Austin, I can remember going
around to outlying terminals and replacing transceiver chips after a storm...
pieces laying round to clean up. The Insurance Company is refusing to pay
for the TV since it was in the living room 20 feet away it could not have been
struck by lightning. Allstate is being a jerk, your not in good hands with
Allstate. The variation in hole sizes is very interesting.
