oh wow i didn’t realize the campus rules were so restrictive. i am a college student and was hoping that i would be able to run slightly larger experiments on campus. never mind that idea.
back to radials..
i just got a look at the roof of my studio where i plan to setup my radio tomorrow. it looks like the roof is made of tin or some other metal sheeting covered with tar paper. is that going to be problematic? could i just connect my transmitter’s ground to some exposed part of the metal roof and use it as a ground plane or would it be better if i used wire radials? if i use wire radials, do i want to short them to the roof or should they be isolated from it?
