I acquired 250' of #2 bare copper and 15 ground rods left over from a job at
work. So that is a start on what I am using for my ground system for a new
LM-354HD crank up tower installation. Base is installed, waiting for the
concrete to cure. Tower is not here yet.
I have to get more wire and rods. I have most of the exothermic one-shots, but
of course, need more of them too. I am pretty much committed to using #2 for
The plan is to just pigtail up the #2, for now, to each tower leg.
I have a choice of either #2 tinned solid copper or #2 stranded for these
pigtails. The one-shots should work with either one by spec. At the moment, I
am not sure how I will attach the fat #2 to the tower legs. I was thinking of
using stranded for that because it would be somewhat more flexible.
Is that a good idea, or should I just stay with the solid?
