    Re: GPS Out but GLONASS O.K.

    A nearby lightening strike can "fry" the sensitive front-ends of radio
    receivers whether grounded or not. It is recommended that external
    antennas have "lightening arrestors" and they can divert induced
    currents to help protect equipment (and the building/vessel) they're
    attached to. We had a telephone-company-supplied modem in our house
    that went out of commission ostensibly due to a nearby lightening
    strike. Phone company replaced it.
