Okay.. i remembered that i saw some radials of an old 10 kW AM broadcast site last year… (in fact, i have unburied about 3 or 4 radials). They have used about 360 radials of 1/4-quarter wave long (one radial per degree) and it was big copper, uninsulated (i think 12 GA, maybe less) so a total of 18.5 km of copper wire!!!! Of course, these radials are green so far (corrosion with the time). I will buy some copper insulated wire because i don’t want that the wire deteriorate.
Do you know if there is a difference of a ground loss between 120 and 360 radials?? I guess it would be 0 ohm for 360.
