Lightning cable (sometimes called lightning conductor) is
intended for lightning protection of buildings and trees. Tower
manufacturers and lightning protection standards for towers do
not recommend its use.
Besides... Why would you pay $2.00 or more per foot (current
prices) when 2 AWG timmed copper wire is less expensive and
is also the "gold standard" against which all other tower
grounding systems are compared?
