Elevated Radials on Shunt Fed Vertical

Anyone have any experience using or modeling a shunt fed vertical
with elevated radials?   Without isolation at the base of the 
vertical, it seems doubtful the impedance of the elevated radials
would be low enough to help much, but I'm not sure.

Am I mistaken, or were there a great many stations responding with the
last two only?  Sure seems like net operation protocol is spreading to

Hi all,

I am interested in finding a semi rare location for CQWW in November.
Preferably one with an available QTH but not 100% necessary if you know a
good hotel that will allow me to put up antennas.
Interesting regions are
Africa, Middle East or Carribean.

If you have any available ideas let me know!
