Thanks for reminding me - I DID see those connector blocks (maybe not
from ICE) but decided against them. I think it was because of my concern
for dissimilar metal corrosion - AL block and CU shield. What did you do,
if anything, to get around this issue? Is there some method to seal the
space where the shield contacts the block? Also, how did you mount this
block or otherwise make your connection to the tower's ground system?
