Exactly right!

Of course, if those 120 radials extended several wavelengths from the 
antenna, well into into the Fresnel Zone, they might begin to have some 
effect on the elevation angle. But by the time the radials get that far 
away, even 120 are pretty sparse and have a limited effect on the soil 

Best option is just to buy that property you always promised yourself by 
the ocean edge, or better still an island ;)
