I think it was worthwhile for Rich to post this information, considering that someone was asking about radials in an elevated mount.
Rich, I’m surprised that the field strength is so high with no counterpoise. That would still give a decent signal strength to a receiver at 1 km, no obstructions of course. While the counterpoise gives you about 60uv/m greater field strength, that is somewhat negated by the reduced signal strength at the receiver antenna (I use a factor of about 2.5). Significant, but certainly not the end of the world as we know it.
