We talking verticals close to ground not Yagis way up.
Yep, it must be me (and K2KW and others who played with verticals close to
ground, and variety of grounds.)
When we measure radiators (impedance, resonant frequency, etc.) there is
discrepancy between the models and reality. I have been using AO, EZNEC with
Mininec and precision grounds, regular, salty, sweet ... just as books and
When I calculate it looks nice on paper (screen) but out of whack. When I
measure the stuff and adjust, then it plays. So I guess I will keep doing it
wrong way :-)
