I would agree, the tiny lightning rod probably adds nothing in the grand scheme of things. But those videos posted above sure beg to speak otherwise, especially the second one with the fried mag mount.

But what about transmitting at 50 watts, Bruce? Shirley that would add to the probability? They suspend the 19:30 Colorado Connection nets when there's lightning, for example.
