The Cadillac of Ground Bars  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
If you are looking for the ultimate in ground bars for your shack this is it. They are thick and easy to bolt ring terminals to and come in a range of sizes drilled and non drilled.

These are expensive but if you are looking for the best product, then this is it.

If you are on a budget then you might consider 1/2 copper pipe and solder the fittings all the way outdoors. However if you are doing this for lightning protection then soldered fittings will not work. I used the Georgia copper bar and connected it to a DX engineering copper bar outside. I used crimped 1" wide copper tinned braid for RF and #6 wire for lightening.

Also, you can buy just the bar from Georgia copper. The massive mounts and insulators offered have little value if you are using this in the shack. Just build your own mount.
