Modelling this configuration shows that beyond a certain length,
making the top hat wires longer is counterproductive. The limit is roughly
where the tips of the wires are at half the height of the vertical.
It may seem good not to need a loading coil, but you are better off
using a loading coil instead of making the top hat come too close
to the ground.
