Sounds good to me.|
What I use here: The bare #2 that gets used for the grounding network runs on into the basement and up into the shack. Here it is harnessed across the back side of the desk and has a number of cable clamps fitted to it. From the cable clamps I run 1/2 inch tinned copper braid to each grounding lug. I crimp a ring lug on the end of the braid for each rig, but flatten it out and slip it under the cable clamp on the #2 cable. It's flexible and allows the rigs to move a *little*. I don't put in much excess.

I will probably get beat up on this but what I have is a 6'x3"x1/4" aluminum bar behind my operating position. It is drilled and tapped every 6". Then at the end I have a 1/4 x 20 bolt that I attached my large ground braid that goes about 5 feet to my ground rod system. Have not had problems with ground loops etc.
