I've never seen a way to cadweld copper strip to a ground rod.|
Maybe there is and I missed it.
But I use mechanical means
Two of them.
Using a sawzall, I gut a kerf in the ground rod, slid the copper flashing into the kerf.
Then I drilled through the rod and the flashing and tightened with brass screws/nets.
I sawed a section of 3/8" copper pipe length wise. Wrapped the flashing around the rod and again drilled through the pipe, rod and flashing. Used brass screws, washers, and nuts.
I've tried both with and without copper conductive paste.

I have searched and searched throughout the archives of TowerTalk and have not been able to ascertain the definitive (or even a good idea) method for cadwelding copper flashing to copper-clad rods. Is this possible? Has anyone done it? I did see one email that referred to Cadweld's commercial molds for doing this but am not sure which product the author was referring to.
See: http://www.mscomputer.com for "Self Supporting Towers", "Wireless Weather Stations", and lot's more. Call Toll Free, 1-800-333-9041 with any questions and ask for Sherman, W2FLA.
