How close is "fairly close"? Are we talking twin lead close? Commercial 450 ohm 
ladder line close? Is 6 inches to far? 
At what point does the ratio of surge impedance to ground resistance cause the 
system to become unworkable? I really don't have a feel for this at all, can 
you give me some clues?
Frozen dirt is new to me also. Winter antenna work in AZ meant shorts, t-shirt, 
and sun blocker. Now I need Carharts, and electric socks and gloves. No more 
soldered connections, you can't solder in 40 MPH winds at blow freezing 
temperatures. I have learned to use wire nuts for most connections and can put 
them on without taking off the gloves!
