most likely the dish itself amplified the emp even though the emp alone could have popped that sensitive preamp. i don't know how you could've averted that as there was the potential in any direction the dish was aimed at for this lightning emp.

Several years ago I asked an Outback guy (either Roy or Christopher) about the sealed version of the FX inverters and EMPs.
Apparantly, as I understood it, half of the original "Men In Black" (engineers at Outback) came from Trace when Xantrex took over and the other half had been working on power supplies for missile guidance systems. (I always thought the FX inverters had a very rugged "military" look to them.)
Anyway, I asked if the design would protect against EMPs caused by nuclear detonations. His response was "If you survive but your inverter does not, give us a call."
BTW; Outback does (or did) also make sealed FX which is a "M" version (military) which I was told is designed to be submersible as well.
