.  I don't like the use of coax connectors on either side of a PL-258 barrel 
connector to provide this ground connection because that approach introduces 
two more connectors into each coax run that can fail.  My approach is what 
the professionals do on cell and LMR towers.  Plus it's relatively cheap.
