I'd go with it, usually an NE-2 lamp.. It works, doesn't fail often,
and just can't hurt.  It is a lot cheaper than a factory supressor.  I
use them on all my receivers.

I had a 75A-2 once that had a neon lamp (NE-2 ???) across the antenna input connection to supposedly act as a surge supressor for lightning, strong static charges and strong rf energy from nearby transmitters. Is this a good idea? Does this really work? Is there a better device than a neon bulb? Appreciate any opinions, etc. 73, Bill, w0ng
