Something to think about....
Suppose we have a location which is surrounded by trees perhaps around fifty
feet tall. Since verticals are affected according to ON4UN by obstructions to
some degree, wouldn't a 1/4 wavelength vertical with a ground plane at around
50 or 60 feet probably be a better performer (assuming it has maybe 12 1/4
wavelength radials) than a ground mounted one with maybe 30 or 40 radials of
same size? Is it a correct assumption for 160?
