hello to all on TT. Im waiting for this weather to become more seasonable for 
commencing this vertical antenna project. Anyway in regard to the radial plate 
installation i decided to go with the prefab Dx engineering stainless steel 
plate. Im curious if the stainless steel will conduct the Rf to the copper 
radials or will there be any loss. question # 2 is connecting the wires to the 
plate, Ive seen most solder lugs then slipping over the bolts. Can i simply tin 
the wire and wrap it directly around the bolt, use never seize and tighten it 
down then paint it with scotchkote? It just seems to be a long daunting job of 
soldering 55+ lugs if not necessary. Thanks in advance guys. 73
