I was curious about this too.  Also, someone here ( Rick?? ) had
placed their ground rods at an angle, so the tops came together
at one point that would be easy to connect to.  That seems like
a pretty good solution for up to 5 or 6 rods.
Also, if your rods are copper coated, is it possable to solder large
gague wire or sheet to them?
