If you want to make a rod attract lightning, it's fairly simple: make it positively charged.

if you Really want to call the lightening, then a long length of very fine copper wire aranged in a large loose loop attatched to a rocket with a needle tip ought to do the trick quite nicely. however I wouldn`t want to be within 100 metres of the thing if you tried it!
you`de still get some interesting fulgerites if the cap failed to charge though

basically if there were a safe, effective way to store the power of lightning, it would be being used, instead of just grounding out all those lightning rods on the tops of sky scrapers.
True, the oly savfe thing to do with that much power right now is to earth it - you can't even run it directly int the power grid!

Benjamin Franklin did it
Just give the message to Dr Who, I'm sure he'll deliver it to 2006 for you.
