Is This -or- Is This Not a One-to-One Line Isolator (UnUn) ?

.
=OR= Is it simply a High-Tech Lightning Arrestor ?
http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/protect/4618.html
.
Should the "Zap Trapper" always be located at the Antenna Head
or better yet 'near' {ON} the Ground Rod ?
.
=OR= Can the "Zap Trapper" be located in the Radio Shack close
to the Radios and Equipment it is supposed to 'Protect' ?

Per Antenna SuperMarket - "The included 'Zap Trapper'
Voltage Surge Protector should be installed directly
at the Rear of the Receiver."

.
NOTE - The Alpha Delta Delta-C Center Insulator has a
Arc-Plugâ?¢ Static Protector built into the Head Unit of
the Antenna far away for the Radio Shack.

Once Again - Does the "Zap Trapper" also function as
a One-to-One (1:1) Coax Cable Line Isolator (UnUn) ?

What do you think it is? Read the literature you posted!
