Hi all,
After watching a couple of videos and concepts for the antenna disconnect arrangement, I put together this arrangement.

    Very nice large gap version! Don’t forget to disconnect the ground also. The ground offers another path for lightning to go through your rig(s).

    Thanks Dave. Your solution also looks elegant too. About your comment- Ground is disconnected along with antenna. The base is made is plywood to prevent conduction.
    In my use, ground is not practical though due to higher floor shack.

    Hello all, I have tested a new simpler version with a linear actuator and a ready to use sonoff device for the antenna disconnect device.

    Comments welcome!
