This one looks to be better than the APC. Don't know whether it would be "approved" by my CATV provider, but I don't really care about what they approve of and do not approve of. It's my equipment I am trying to protect, not theirs<g>


Who is your provider? Mine is cable one. I had rg/11Q terminated, the tech didn't even touch the arrestor.

A good ground is the only thing they should care about, most techs just sink rods and thats a violation.
