You can take a couple of feet of 1/2" copper water pipe, flatten it with a 
hammer and drill all the holes you want through it for a lot less money than 
the DXE stainless steel plate.  In my mind, copper wire to copper ground plate 
to coax would be better than putting stainless in the middle, but that's why 
I'm asking.

And if you are really serious about solid connections and/or corrosion, you can 
solder to the copper. You can't do that with stainless.
