I suppose we need someone to weigh in with an NEC or some such model to analyze the non-symetrical counterpoise
Here is one I did for a “ham” operator who wondered what the radiation pattern of a monopole might look like if he used buried ground wires arranged as shown. He was thinking of tunneling one wire under a patio to get to accessible earth where he could bury radials over a 180-deg sector.
The offset radials really don’t do much to the shape of the radiation pattern, but the radiation efficiency of the system would be better if the radials converged at the base of monopole, and covered a 360-deg span.
