I use ring terminals crimped then soldered. I have to agree that the size of
the ground terminals on most rigs does prevent the easy use of a larger
gauge ground wire. My station ground rod is about 3 ft from the rig and 6ft
in the ground. The largest wire I could use to ground the rig and the amp
was a #10. I like the ring terminals since they make a neat and solid
connection when crimped and soldered both.|
I have also used the buss bar behind the desk method and got the hardware from a vendor in QST that I do not recall right now. Seems it was JS something "systems". 73 / DX

How do people attach their rigs to a bus-bar (or similar)? The bigger the ground wire the better, but most rigs/amps have small, somewhat fragile grounding posts. How do others out there connect a nice hefty ground wire to their rig or amp? Also, how do people attach the wires to the bus-bar or ground rod? Bolts? U-Clamps? Solder? Any advice would be appreciated.
