Ok Rich, I didn’t reprint your entire statement but I thought it was clear that I had acknowledged your were talking about unburied wire which extend the total length beyond 3 meters. I acknowledged what you have reiterated. I did not miss your point.
To quote my response quoteing your response-“And yes, “if they extend the length of whatever is connected to the r-f output connector of the transmitter plus the those “ground” conductors to a total of more than three meters” is understood.
See, I didn’t miss your point that unburied wires extending the total length to more than 3 meters are not allowed. Your complete text is “unburied “ground” conductors of every physical orientation are not allowed if they extend the length of whatever is connected to the r-f output connector of the transmitter plus the those “ground” conductors to a total of more than three meters.”
So, now that we both agree that any wires attached to the r-f connector of the transmitter plus those “ground” conductors which extend the total to more than three meters is not allowed under FCC ¶15.219(b) how can you say the FCC’s position on an elevated counterpoise attached to said system or top hat load attached to said system is unknown? These are both comprised of “wires of every physical orientation” which are not buried, connected to the antenna system (to include lead in cable, antenna and ground) and causing the total length to extend beyond the permitted 3 meters.
And please don’t answer: NO YOU’VE MISSED THE POINT! Your point is that unburied wires are allowed to be connected to the antenna system as long as they don’t extend the total length beyond the permitted 3 meters.
Does anyone else think I’m missing the point?
I’m sweatin’ here…
