Ok, thanks to all who responded to my last post. really appreciate all the 
help. I considered the ground bus system but didn't want to bury the aluminum 
due to it disintegrating in 5 years and above ground how could it be secured 
without it shifting. So i just went ahead and ordered the DX engineering 
stainless plate. It U bolts right to the post. I just bought 26,000 feet of # 
14 stranded insulated copper wire at a govt surplus bussiness in norfolk va. I 
paid 615.00. I know i will never use all of it in a lifetime but who knows. For 
that price i had to jump on it. So the question is on my 43' vertical how many 
radials would you reccomend before it's a waste of time and should i make them 
longer than the antenna. I can run some as long as 55' and some as short as 
25'. Im thinking 25' would be ineffective. Any ideas. thanks in advance.
