i noticed that when i moved my ground radial around i would get different maximum voltages. this led me to go ahead and make a proper radial setup with 8 radials: http://i.imgur.com/oIVPz.jpg
disconnected from the grounding rod i am back up to 10.5V peak. its still not as good as when i had one giant radial hanging over the side of my house (13V) but it is a start. i tried attaching the radial system back to the ground rod and my max voltage dropped back down to 3.5V. are you guys sure i should be using a grounding rod?
