Definately use the strap, but come off the tower a bit higher.
You want about a 45 degree angle from each tower leg to
the three ground rods. Do not turn the strap 90 degrees under the
bolt on the tower. Come strait down. Then the three ground rods
are also strapped together with the copper strap. You can dig a
trench for this, but mine are on top of the ground. Keep all the
straps tight as possible.
