> Can copper ribbon be clamped directly to an aluminum tower leg?
The short answer... No.
So now the explanation. As copper and aluminum are two dissimilar
metals, if you have an electrolyte you will have made a battery.
Aluminum Ox. and water create a real good electrolyte.
So if you don't take the right precautions the galvanic currents
will reduce your aluminum to a white powder. Not good for support
I would guess.
If you still want to do this invest in some Penetrox B or other
I would try to think up a different way of hooking up
your ground to the tower (a CU to AL lug maybe)
