Thanks to everyone for their extremely helpful suggestions on dealing with my
hilltop rock QTH.
It looks like the most reasonable things to do are:
1) Install a number of copper strip radials from the tower base along the
2) Ground the bulkhead to the AC service ground.
Now, here's the dumb questions ....
Let's assume I want to create a copper ring around the tower, and attach the
copper strips to the copper ring.
- Which of the Polyphaser (or other) products let me clamp a copper strip to a
Rohn 45 tower leg ? I see a number of Polyphaser TK-series clamps that look
like hose clamps. Okay, that goes around the tower leg, but now I need to
securely attach the copper strip to the clamp. Another SS hose clamp on top,
? Is this even the right product to use ?
- How should I attach the copper strips to the copper ring ? Clearly, I want
much surface area of the copper strap to be in contact with the copper ring as
possible. I presume that soldering is a no-no for this purpose ?
