These hemispheres should not overlap for maximum benefit. A ten foot ground rod has a hemisphere diameter of 20 feet, or a ten foot radius. So these 10 foot radii make the spacing between rods a distance of 20 feet (10' radius + 10' radius). I would also recommend putting multiple rods in the system. Grounding your tower is ONE part of the overall ground system. 73, Steve K7LXC -- FAQ on WWW: http://www.contesting.com/towertalkfaq.html Submissions: towertalk@contesting.com Administrative requests: towertalk-REQUEST@contesting.com Problems: owner-towertalk@contesting.com Search: http://www.contesting.com/km9p/search.htm ```
