<< I would suggest one correction to a comment made and I quote: "It's easy
solder any other wires...."! Please, never solder any grounds! The low
melting point of solder will cause the joint to disintegrate extremely
rapidly with a very small surge of lightning. Then NO ground protection!
Use clamps and good strong compression fittings designed for the purpose!
Very good point and I just pointed out I used 2 brass screws and then solder
any heavy wire to the copper strip inside the shack. k7gco
