W1CM ( I think ) had an interesting thread on his vertical and radials.
In it he mentioned the vertical began 4' off the ground.
I know he has snow, but I wonder what would happen if the end were
lowered. 4' is just to significant a %. The old addage "Verticals
radiate equally poorly in all directions" came from the fact that
initially, hams still assumed the higher the better.
