I seem to recall K9AY recommending four short radials, maybe 8 feet long.
Perhaps someone with a manual handy can confirm this. If you have a poor
ground, you may want to use a receive antenna that is not ground dependant,
such as a pennant.

I have a second question about short radials: If you were to improve the
ground under a K9AY loop by using radials, how many and how long? 160m
