Harger makes really good heavy duty connectors.   Two bolts for a solid connection.

They used to sell direct but now have distributors.

Georgia Copper -- who advertise on a number of amateur radio web sites.
http://www.gacopper.com/

PolyPhaser sells various clamps

Shop at your amateur radio dealers -- Local Retail Shopping or Internet/Phone orders.

One place not mentioned yet--You local electrical supply house.  They more than likely have everything--and anything--needed, including one shot cad-welding kits.

If you're going to bury any of the connections, be sure to use brass and not zinc.
