Bill I also have the problem of widely separated grounding points.

In my case, utility at one corner, cable TV and telephone at opposite corner, 
ham shack in rear middle of house.

Here in Texas we have a lot of rock.  The only way to insert ground rods 
vertically is to drill
and with 16 foot separation I would have a lot of rock holes to drill!

For my tower I use 9 radials of 1.5" copper in a two foot trench.  No ground 
Do you think that would be adequate to run around the house for grounds?

Thanks, Larry N2LA
