Those crimp-on terminals are very inexpensive when purchased in bulk.
As for lead/tin solder suitability .. solder well .. then coat the 
terminal with silicone seal [RTV if you can find it] and you won't have 
to worry about contact with typical earth or weather.

I am also looking for ring terminals suitable for ground radials, 
something less expensive than insulated crimp-on terminals, for 1/4' 
studs and multiple #13 wires.  I also wish information about using 
various solders outdoors.  Is it correct that lead-tin solder is not 
suitable if in contact with typical earth?  How about near earth, 
exposed to weather?  Is ph of the earth a factor?  What is recommended?
