RE: improved spark gap reports (copper strap source)

Would 8AWG cable be ok for the
ground wire or is copper strap the only thing worth it?  Total run will
be as much as 25ft.  Where can I get strap and about how much does it


I only have experience with copper strap so I can't say if it's better.  I
made my strap from copper roof flashing, sold at Home Depot stores.  It
comes in rolls both 12" and 24" wide and is sold by the foot.  I sheared it
into 2" wide strips and soldered the ends together.
