Abstract : The natural frequencies are calculated for a metallic post with a lightning channel attached. Two different lightning channel models are discussed and the asymptotic antenna techniques if employed to solve the problem formulated in terms of an integro-differential equation. The results are presented by way of figures and approximate analytic formulas. Applications of the results are also briefly discussed.
