In the broadcast industry, we use copper grounding strap to tie the tower
base on an am tower to the ground radials. It is also used in phasor
cabinets ans indide transmitters as well. If you know a broadcast engineer
in your area, he may be able to point you in the direction of some of this
material left over from an installation. This material is between 4 and 12
inches wide and 14 to 20 gauge in thickness.
