I'm installing a tower & ground system & I need to determine the soil
resistivity. The soil at my location is 100% fine sand, but it does retain
a lot of moisture. We have lots of lightning, so I need a good ground
system. I wan't to perform a four-stake soil resistivity test as described
in the Polyphaser book. Have any of you done this test? If so, what kind
of power supply did you use? What current did you supply to the outside
stakes, and what voltage was required to produce this current flow? What
was the level of voltage that you measured at the inside stakes?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
