Just for the sake of discussion, if the antenna support proposed by kc8gpd was non-conductive (wood pole) and the antenna were mounted directly to the antenna (Hamilton AM100) with 3-4 guy lines/ground radials 20 feet in length with insulators to isolate the counterpoise effect extending from the transmitter chassis and equally spaced, would that not be a legitimate system if parameters 2 & 6 were allowed under a proposed rulemaking? Remember not every antenna support is conductive nor is every ground system buried ground radials. And by the way, AM broadcast stations have been licensed for decades with ground systems on the top of tall buildings. BTW they work pretty well too.
