Hi Folks,

Getting ready to set-up a ground buss behind all the equipment on the
operating table.  Running a six ft piece of 1/2 inch copper pipe which
is connected to the ufer ground system.

Want to ask whether 1/2 inch flat silver tinned braid strap is OK to use
to interconnect the equipment to the copper pipe.  I expect the jumpers
will be from one to two feet long.

I vaguely remember reading that braid was not preferred when trying to
reduce unwanted RF currents.  If my memory serves me correctly it was
stated that a piece of #16 guage wire was better than using 1/2 inch
