Hi Brian and also welcome :-)
I would combinate back to back diodes with a isolating transformer for audio. A
combination of the hints you heared before ;-) The transformer prevents
galvanic coupling (could become a problem even if your wire is grounded for
high voltages by the diodes) and the diodes on the soundcard side are an
additional safety factor that reduces voltage spikes. But the diodes start to
conduct already at some 1/10 volts (depending on the temperature) so you may
use 2 in series each...

Welcome to the reflector. Back to back diodes are good option to limit surges
and spikes, but others are more qualified than me to advise

Subject: LF: Static protection when using a soundcard as an Rx
My first post to the reflector.
I plan to try using a sound card and a "long wire" (well as long as I can fit
into the garden) antenna and later a kit lofted antenna but I'm concerned re
Normally I'd add a "dc short" with an inductor but at 10kHz than is a big
inductor. A resistor is another options.
Does anyone have any other suggestions, please.
