I've got the 2 new towers in cement and buried the conduit in the cement.One 
for feedlines, 4 inches and 3 for grounding the legs.What is the way to 
connect a ground wire to those legs?I've used those clamps on my other 
towers and they seem to work well.I have some that show no loss on my ohm 
meter after 19 years of use.But,is there a better way?Those clamps don't 
have a very big hole for the wire,I think maybe an 8 or 6 gauge is it.I 
think I used 8 gauge because I had it.I don't think I'm doing it to grade 
but I'm doing the grounding the best I can with what I have.I'm willing to 
take the risk.Besides if you take a direct shot there is little that can be 
done,SOMETHING will get fried. Any ideas?  Gregg  K9KL
