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.
