Maybe I missed it, but someone should have pointed out that certain research
has shown that insulated wire works BETTER than bare wire for radials due to
the capacitive effect.  I find this hard to believe, but have no good
experience to refute it.

I did have a 130' vertical for 160 with radials going into salt water which
worked great, but I would like to hear from anyone who has changed from bare
to insulated wire...
