The one I have, was supplied by John/W5MEU(sk - RIP). It is a phoenelic
rod, about 2 feet long, with a threaded peice of metal that screws into
the phoenolic, has a flat-washer, one end of 1/2" wide, stainless-steel
clad copper braid, about 4 foot long, attached to the rig's front panel,
and one of the screws holding in one of the decks.
