OK then please explain why hy-gain in their manual for the 14AVQ has a
table for optimum ground system configurations as
radials 16 24 36 60 90 120
lengthin wl 0.1 0.125 0.15 0.2 0,25 0.4
feed point impedance 52 46 43 40 37 35
radial ends buried (?) Y Y Y N N N
Which to me states, if longer radials, then need more, impedance goes down
and power goes up or if more radials need more etc.
Just trying to figure out these things.
