It is not possible that Brown’s ground loss resistance is nearly that low. Rich determined with his NEC program that the maximum loss resistance permissible in order to get Brown’s results is .149 ohms.
I reversed the positions of the last two digits of that number when typing that post — it should be 0.194 ohms, the sum of the 0.144 and 0.050 ohmic losses on the simulation page I linked to. So our two values actually are closer than thought.
These posts have given a lot of information, and, while our sources may not show exact agreement, hopefully the interchange had interest and value.
