Most of the discussion I see about verticals assumes ground mounting, and I 
guess that it is because of ease of installation.  However, ground mounting 
also requires an extensive radial system.  How do ground mounted verticals 
compare in performance to roof mounted verticals, say at a height of 20 feet or 
so, with 4 quarter wave radials per band?

Are most verticals ground mounted because they also perform better with such a 
mount?  Or will a roof mounted vertical with the 1/4 wave radials be an equal 
or even better performer?
