The same would hold true for elevated radials?
I am designing a 4-square for 80m. Full size verticals. Comteq
phasing/switching unit. But I need elevated radials for practical reasons
(the land below is used for small-size agriculture). I am not sure how many
and how long radials are needed for each antenna. I am not after the
ultimate system, only one with decent results.
Thank you for any suggestion. Best regards,
