Let's face it.  That's exactly what elevated radials are, "low 
dipoles...over bare earth".  Thus, the antenna interaction encountered by 
those like myself. They are bound to interact with close by antennas and 
other nearby metalic objects. For those who have room to put them far away 
from their other antennas, that's another story.  But I don't have that 
luxury. They are certainly better than nothing, but one must understand the 
pros and cons and the locations they have to work with.
