Hello All,

I'm working on a 4 square project with 4 towers which are 
now being painted. I've read the Low-Band DXing by ON4UN 
and find out on the "Buried radials" section that 60 
radials, 1/4 wave lenght, per tower will perform well.

I can't use elevated radials because of I must "invade" the 
neighbors properties on each side of my property and an 
aerial invasion could be miss-understood, so I have to go 
by the underground. One side is an unoccupied lot and the 
other one is used only for growing fruit trees.

The question is: Do I need to solder the radials which 
cross each other in the inner square? Is it too important?

Tips for grounding the 4 square will be very wellcome.

Thanks in advance.
