Is there an advantage to using bare radial wires vs. insulated to get electrical contact with earth? I used insulated 22 gauge wire (1000 ft) for radials around my vertical thinking it would last lon

Don't think you'd notice one bit of difference between bare and insulated wire as far as the perfomance of the antenna goes.. it's not about ground contact but capcitance to ground. I have used verti

I would think not. You're concerned about RF currents, and the dielectric around the wire just makes it look like a series capacitor (but one of very low impedance) to the surrounding soil. _________

Is there any lightning protection difference? I would think the radial system could come up to higher potential in a strike if insulated. Of course, you shouldn't be relying on your ground radial sys
