Oh, Ohoo.. Another “What If”.. 😕
Does the diameter of the ground radials make a difference? Or, Does the type of wire make any difference?
I find that electric fence wire is cheap. Most is steel and is galvanized and comes in long lengths.. (1/4 mi,1/2mi.) It would last for a good time in the ground I believe..
So.. What if a ground area was made with this type of wire (120 radials at least .4 wavelength) with a center loaded antenna at 3 meters above the ground. Would it be safe to say that this configuration would be about the best possible? (I have a couple of open acres to play in) 8)
