I don't know the diameter of the base section of that tower, but I would
suggest that you separate the copper ground wire from the galvanized
mast by a stainless-steel shim cut from a hose clamp. then clamp the
whole thing with another stainless-steel hose clamp -- or two
daisy-chained together if necessary.
Polyphaser makes coax grounding kits: four different ones, the choice
depending on the metals at each end. I have found DX Engineering to be a
very prompt supplier of Polyphaser products.
