[TowerTalk] Coax Grounding on a tower.

All coax cables running up my tower are terminated with PL259 connectors at
the tower base.  These are connected using barrel connectors to coax cables
running through conduit to the aluminum bulkhead in the shack window.  I
have Polyphaser clamps that attach to the tower leg and provide for copper
wire connection on the outside.

I'd never heard of them. I'll have to look into them if I can find the
information.  I've been reluctant to cut the jacket any place to make up
something like this, but the Polyphaser might be just what I'm looking for.
