I presume the "wink" indicates that is a joke !

The only thing that would improve the elevation pattern would be 
improved ground conditions in the Fresnel Zone where the ground 
reflections are taking place. That would take some awfully long radials 
- certainly well beyond my property boundary - and an awful lot of them 
to achieve a copper density that would affect the conductivity so far out.
