Hi,  I believe the radial field "density" will not impact the take
off angle.  That is established several wavelengths on out
from the antenna.  The radial field is there to improve the
efficiency  of performance,  that is,  RF to the antenna
set up from the rig vs.  the RF energy actually radiated
and not lost in resistive heating of the dirt below,  hi.
