I have 8 – ten foot radials, I will try tuning with no audio, my antenna is a modification of the magna and the sstran adjustable mast and non adjustable coil.. IF I find that it’s not doing it I can tap the coil with a dremmel and a soldering iron…
I have plans to rebuild my coil and mast acording to the sstran model and see if it helps..
I know groundis important.. thus my 10 foot radials.. felt that was a good point to start.. there about 3 inces below the surface.
Any one know if depth makes a better diffrece vs width..
I mean would the dept of the radial make a difrence in the ground… or does the wide-ness of the radials be better… OR both if i dig up the tips of my radials and pound 6 foot rod in and solder it to it will this make the best of both worlds?
Im sure this all depends on the soil you have..
I wont be able to do much with my ground system soon as the frost is comming.
All this trial and error makes this a very time consuming hobby 🙂
