The effect varies depending on ground conductivity, but will be relatively
slight. Do what you can, get on the air, and have fun.

Subject: [TowerTalk] 160m vertical
I've just put up a 160m vertical but I can not put radials in all
directions. At best I can cover about 240 degrees with full size radials,
in the other directions it is only possible to put down a few short ones.
What effect, if any, will this have on the pattern of the antenna?
