Yes, some antenna sites are not open flat land, and it’s good to know special approaches to make an installation fit the space.
I’ve got an irregular situation coming up, consisting of a 3-legged bamboo tripod holding up a 3-meter antenna, right at the edge of a 4-foot drop down to the driveway. The ground radials will be flat on three sides of the tower, but the drop-off will have radials buried at a down-hill angle and buried under the driveway over to the edge of neighboring property.
The driveway side radials might be shorter than the hill-top flat radials, depending on the lengths finally used.
Can you make a prediction about the performance of such an antenna design?
