Your link is anecdotal with out consideration to radiation E and H patterns.
  The chicken wire would dissolve in two years or so in the soil around 
here.(it rusts above ground in a little over a year.
  He does make the point common to all vertical antennas, that the longer they 
are in the vertical the better they work.
  The statement that they generally provide a 50 ohm resistive match is 
unsubstantiated, and pretty contrary to a efficient radiator over efficient 
radial system.
  The comment on ground rod at base brings up the previous numerous postings on 
lightning protection.
  The statement that they are "immune" to trees and foliage just leaves me 
scratching my head. New era physics that wasn't taught when I learned it. Maybe 
tree heating doest count.
   I have more but lunch calls. Others can take up the flag.

Do you Yahoo!?
