And, it shouldn't take much more wire.  Let's say the stakes are one or two
or three feet apart at the perimeter, you would have, say, a 130' radial and
a three foot extra piece going over to the next stake, then another 130'
radial back in.  That's a pretty small percentage and not much "wastage."

With 130' radials, the circumference is 816.8 feet. If there are 120 radials, the stakes would be 6.8 feet apart, which is still only about 2.6% more wire.
