The copper when in contact with the galvanized tower will remove the
galvanizing. A stainless sheet between copper and tower leg will work
fine. Polyphaser makes some hose clamps with an additional stainless
strap inside the clamp to accomplish this.|
You also don't want any copper exposed anywhere that water dripping off the copper will drip or run onto any galvanized part of the tower. The copper ions will wash the galvanizing material away.

I have used stainless steel hose clamps to bond the galvanized tower leg to copper ground lead and have seen no adverse affects over the past six years.
