Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.

On the subject of stranded vs solid wire for grounding; my guess is that 
there is some electrical advantages, but the argument I see most is that 
solid is easier to clean compared to stranded when making a renewed 

I'd have to agree because over the years, I kept cutting my 00 stranded 
to remove corrosion on the ends and wound up with ground wires that were 
too short. In hindsight, I should have coated the lug, ground rod and 
ground wire with an anti-corrosion compound. Same goes for the aluminum 
lug / ground wire connection at the tower. What's best to use?
