 I believe you can omit the the tinning and wrap the wire directly under the 
bolt after putting some Schotchkote on it.

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
