I've heard/read that when laying radials on the ground there's really not much 
benefit to making the radial length any longer then the height of your 
antenna.  So... if I'm using a ground mounted hustler 6bv(?) vertical that's 
25' tall I might as well make my radials all 25' long.  Wonder if anyone has an 
opinion on that?  Also... any problem just using galvanized electric fence wire 
for radials?
Thanks for input.  This will be my primary antenna till I get my newly 
purchased tower up in the next few months.
