Well Gary guess you will have to dig deep into your pocket book and get 3 to 6 
inch OD copper pipe about 12 ft long or so and go from there.  Where I live the 
ground is moist at 8ft down in August when it is the driest, so I opted to 
drill through the basement floor to drive  my 8 foot station rods in.  You have 
to make your station ground as good or better than the electrical ground.

If you want your ground to be wet more dig a hole about 3 ft diameter dig down 
about 15ft line the walls with that big city drain pipe and you have a shallow 
well.  I will draw water towards the well and keep your station ground damp.

 Keep The Faith, Jim K9TF/WA9YSD
