That was sort of my point.  If vertical A works better over a modest radial 
set than radial B, then a test over such a ground plane would be biased in 
A's favor.  I haven't read your report, and you may have included a caveat 
to that effect, or made an effort to install what you regarded as a typical 
ground screen.  Either would be fine with me.
