How do,

Rick is looking for cheap ground wire:

I'm amazed no one has suggested flat, copper, roof flashing. It comes
in rolls about 6" wide and different lengths, and is available at the
big box stores. Because of the large, flat, surface it is low

NOT low inductance.. Inductance is a VERY weak function of conductor shape.

Strap has Low AC resistance (large surface area, so skin effect means that the current is spread over a large cross-section).

So use that strap when it's part of your antenna, but save your money in other applications.
