I just drafted a reply to Mack's question delineating the problem I've had with
vertical arrays. After I sent the e-mail, an idea popped into my head. I wonder
my problems have to do with ground conductivity? The soil here in New England
is poor (2 mS) and beverages are known to perform well over poor ground. Dave,
W0FLS, has had good results with his 8 circle but he has substantially better
ground in Iowa (15 mS).
Could those of you who have had better results with your vertical arrays than
Beverages let me know what your local ground conductivity is? If there is a
I might see if putting down some radials will improve the situation.
Thanks, Roger N1RJ
