If you were checking grounds in a newly developed project with new houses, what 
would you use to check the grounding to each house?  The fire hydrant.  You 
would run heavy 00 welding cable from the hydrant to each house and measure the 
resistance.  Out in the country you would use your well casing as your 
reference and measure resistance to various points. RF as far as I am concerned 
is less than 1 OHM.  Electrical standards is 25  ohms or so.  Every thing 
radiates so you have to take other measures.
