Correct me if I am wrong, but I had heard that terminating and tying each of 
the radials to a common bus line where they intesect it to be the prefered way 
now; and that is why Com Tek shows this method in their manual.

Dick, you are correct.  What I did for my 4 Sq was to lay down a criss-cross of 
bare solid #10 with the center at the Comtek box.  Any radials from the 
verticals that intersected this were soldered to this criss-cross buss (used 
silver bearing solder for longer life) and obviously any radials that didn't 
intersect were layed out to their full length.  My system seems to work fine.
