Is there any cause for concern hooking two grounds together for separate 
Beverages?   I have a a single wire Beverage that runs 600 feet to the 
East and and another that runs 600 feet to the West.  The ground rods 
are 6 feet apart.  I use spiders on both 4x 30' and earth is moderate to 
good conductivity as a former hay field now covered with high grasses..  
Is there any advantage or disadvantage from connection of the two ground 
rods  together with a #8 bare copper jumper?
