Good idea. I would suggest crimping the copper pipe (hammer it down) on the
wires before soldering.
As for those concerned that copper will deteriorate in the ground: if that's a
problem, the ground wires will disappear first!
As for solder crumbling in the atmosphere: I have never noticed it on my
antenna wires. It's my understanding that roofers solder copper roofing.
