Looking back, I think things have been misconstrued. Rich is on an small island, like me. I looked it up, it’s a small beach town, something like the former fishing village/meeting place where I live. But, of course, my town grew to the horrific population of, umm, about 1800 today.
Anyway, since Rich’s old mount point metal roof beach building may not be available because of political jurisdiction (I was just hoping he could set up a wireless STL), I believe the issue is how to get as much legal range as possible in the new location, a non-metal roof top a block away from the original mount point.
Will setting a bunch of radials on the roof work? What are the ramifications of above ground radials? Should he instead nail down aluminum (or whatever) sheets on the roof (no leaks)? Should they be ground or counterpoise?
Will any of that get more legal range?
I’m just hoping to help clarify the issues so we can avoid the spin, running off down bunny trails.
