There are parallel 16 AWG tinned wires
running north-south every 3 feet. There
are similar wires running east-west.
The wires are laying on the ground.
The crossovers are silver soldered with
Stay-Brite and pure rosin. On top
of the screen, are a bunch of radials
for 40 and 80 meter verticals. The verticals
are currently down for maintenance.
