The aerostat-supported antennatether cable of a communication system is protected from destructive corona discharges by a dual corona ring assembly which attaches the feed cable of the transmitter to the antenna. The voltage divider assembly includes upper and lower corona rings which have a space between them which is an isolated and corona-free attachment point for the feed cable. By attaching the voltage divider assembly to the antennatether cable at about 12 to 15 feet above the ground, the base of the antennatether cable distributes the feed voltage along its length to levels below those voltage levels in which destructive ionization may occur.
