I have approximately one acre free in the back yard and was considering a
triangle array. The area is 200' square. At the closest points to the
property line the back two verticals would only be ~1/16wl long, but
most of the radials would be approaching or exceeding 1/8wl as they fan
out. Would I be better off going with a 2el array with longer radials
given an equal number of radials (say 60)? What if the radials were
doubled on the triangle array? I have a Bobcat coming this weekend or
next to drill a bunch of holes and would like to drill for the bases for an
array at the same time if possible.
Hopefully, someone has modeled or tried this already.
