That picture looks as if the antenna is right next to the street, but what your seeing is the antena is on top of our yard right after the antenna the yard slopes down at about 45 degrees for a 5 foot drop to the street.. so its quite elevated above the street… My radials run down to the curb on the street..
Uor yard is above the rest of the town so im a bit higher than other spots in town , i hope this make my signal fallow a bit better..
So that brings up a quaetion would the ideal antenna be placed up on top of a big pile of dirt.. prividing a high transmission point but stuill haveing a good ground base… Say you haul in a few truckloads of dirt for a pile and cover the entire thing in radials and or chicken wire down to the regular ground leven and beyound that.. gets you some added elevation, and gets you around the ground lead limitations of the FCC laws..
How much dirt would it take for saya 20 foot high pile ?
