One reason for the 120 radial ground system on broadcast sticks often
over-looked is that a large number of radials below grade makes the
system more stable over seasons between dry and wet wx.  It may not
matter as much for ham but many radials causes the Z to settle down or
not vary as widely between dry and wet earth.   This does not relieve
hams from the need for a lot of radials on or below the ground; at
least 60 is needed and no reason to not shoot for 90 short ones close
in if room is limited.
