Larry, what is the shield of your coax connected to? A ground rod at the
vertical base?. Are the radials bare or insulated wire? 73, Dan, N5AR

I just got done installing a new inv-L for 160, right next to my
existing Hy-Tower, which has 77 radials.

I managed to get 4 new radials for 160 run before the wx turned bad, and
I ran a single connecting wire between the two bases. Eventually, I will
end up with two radial systems crossing over/intersecting each other.

The antenna works fine, I got a GM last night on the first call with 100W.

My question is, for now, if there are lots of radials underneath a
vertical, BUT NOT CONNECTED TO IT, do they do anything?
